Brown University Students and Recent Alumni Earn Prestigious Scholarships

This year’s classes of Marshall, Schwarzman, and Voyager scholars included two undergraduates, one graduate student, and four recent grads.

Seven students and recent graduates have been selected for inclusion in the most recent cohorts of the esteemed Marshall, Schwarzman, and Voyager scholars program, in recognition of their personal academic achievements and Brown University’s dedication to producing excellent scholars.

“I am enormously proud of this year’s fellowship recipients, as well as all of our finalists and applicants for these and other remarkable fellowships,” said Assistant Dean of the College for Fellowships Joel Simundich. “It takes conviction for a student to pursue their dreams and courage to even apply. I hope all students at Brown see in their peers recognized here that same conviction and courage in themselves.”

Class of 2022 alumnae Jamila Beesley and Kaitlan Bui were awarded Marshall Scholarships, which provide full funding for two years of graduate study in the United Kingdom, where both will attend the University of Oxford. Fifty-one Marshall Scholars — the largest class since the program’s founding in 1954 — were chosen from 1,006 applicants from around the U.S.

Two recent graduates of Brown and one graduate student — Felipe Félix Méndez, Zlatko-Salko Lagumdzija and Ruochen Sun, respectively — earned honors as 2024 Schwarzman Scholars. Modeled after the Rhodes Scholarship, the Schwarzman provides full funding for students to pursue a one-year master’s degree in global affairs at Tsinghua University in Beijing, one of China’s most prestigious universities. This year’s class includes 150 scholars from 43 countries, chosen from a pool of over 4,000 applicants.

The Obama-Chesky Scholarship for Public Service, which allows each winner to pursue meaningful travel experiences with the help of a 10-year, $20,000 post-graduate stipend and a network of mentors and leaders to support them through careers in public service, has named Brown juniors Khushi Patel and Bart Hearn to the 2023–25 Voyager scholars cohort.

With their awards, each of Brown’s recipients will have the chance to use foreign studies to increase their global influence.
