Three MIT students—including two Burchard Scholars—have won Rhodes Scholarships

Three MIT students — Ugwechi Amadi, Caroline Huang and Steven Mo — have won Rhodes Scholarships to study next year at Oxford University. The School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences is very proud of all three students, who have engaged deeply with the School's disciplines. Huang has a minor in political science, and Amadi and Mo have been Burchard Scholars—MIT students who excel in the humanities, arts, or social sciences fields, often in addition to studies in science or engineering.

Congratulations to Ugwechi, Caroline, and Steven, and to their families and mentors!

The Rhodes Scholarships, the oldest international fellowships, were initiated in 1902, and bring outstanding students from around the world to the University of Oxford. The first American Scholars entered Oxford in 1904.
