One Gallatin senior, Robert Clinton (BA ’16), has been awarded a Marshall Fellowship and one Gallatin alumnus, Zachary Fine (BA ’15), has been named as a Rhodes Scholar; both will receive funding to pursue graduate degrees in the United Kingdom beginning in the fall of 2016.

Robert Clinton will attend University College London as a Marshall Scholar, one of thirty-two American students so named from a pool of 916 applicants. The Marshall Scholars program, which is funded by the British government, allows high-achieving scholars to undertake postgraduate studies in the UK program of their choice, with the goal of nurturing future leaders and strengthening British-American collaborations. The scholarship covers the cost of graduate study and living at a British university of the recipient’s choice for up to two years. As a Marshall Scholar, Clinton will pursue a Master of Science in Sustainable Urbanism and Master of Research in Interdisciplinary Urban Design from the Bartlett, University College London’s Faculty of the Built Environment.

Gallatin alumnus Zachary Fine is one of thirty-two Americans selected this year as a 2016 Rhodes Scholar. Rhodes Scholarships, the oldest and one of the most prestigious awards for international study, provide funding for all expenses for two or three years of post-graduate study at Oxford University. At Oxford, Fine will join a cohort of 89 scholars selected from around the world. As a Rhodes Scholar, Fine will pursue an MSt in the History of Art and Visual Culture and an MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice while at the University of Oxford.
