Caroline Clark ’15 and Catherine Miller ’16 (l-r) soon will be traveling to San Francisco as finalists for the Luce Scholars Program, a nationally competitive fellowship program. The program is supported by the Henry Luce Foundation in New York which annually selects 15 to 18 students from around the country to study in Asia for a year. Rhodes is one of only 75 colleges and universities allowed to nominate students for the program.
Luce Scholars gain new perspectives and cultural insights on their host countries and have backgrounds in fields including the arts, law, science, public health, and international relations.
An urban studies major, Clark plans to pursue a career in development and art. Miller hopes to help build a more sustainable, equitable food system. She is majoring in environmental science with a minor in political science.
The new class of Luce Scholars will be announced in February.
