Two NYUAD Students Named by Rhodes Trust as Inaugural Falcon Scholars
February 4, 2014
Congratulations to NYUAD seniors Shamma Sohail Faris Al Mazrui and Charlotte Wang who have been selected as the two 2014 Falcon Scholars from the UAE. They will be the first to embark on this scholarship, administered by the Rhodes Trust, which will fund them to study at the University of Oxford for a minimum of two years.
The Falcon Scholarship, modelled after the Rhodes Scholarship, is awarded each year to one or two exceptional students who have completed an undergraduate degree from a college or university in the UAE, and are ineligible to apply for the Rhodes Scholarship in another country. At Oxford, they will be welcomed as members of the community of Rhodes Scholars.
