Two Yalies named Rhodes Scholars

Alice Baumgartner ’10 and Will Zeng ’11 are among the 32 American students named Rhodes Scholars this weekend.

Baumgartner (a former staff columnist for the News) and Zeng, both members of Berkeley College, were chosen from a field of 837 candidates endorsed by 307 colleges and universities across the country, according to a press release from the Rhodes Trust released Saturday. The Rhodes Trust will fund two or three years of study at the University of Oxford for a group of about 80 scholars selected worldwide, including the American contingent just announced.
