2010 Rhodes Scholars announced -- a breakdown by school
This weekend the Rhodes Trust announced its next class of Rhodes Scholars. The 32 students will study (for free) at the University of Oxford in England for two or three years, starting next October.
The application process is rigorous: More then 1,500 students across the country sought endorsement from their college or university to apply. This year, 837 students at 309 schools were endorsed. On Saturday, 32 were selected.
The University of Chicago, Harvard College and Stanford University had three scholars each. Two universities had their first Rhodes Scholars in history: Ursinus College in Pennsylvania and the University of California at Irvine. And South Dakota, for the first time, had two scholars.
