WASHINGTON — A recent graduate of Washington University in St. Louis and two Missouri women have been named Rhodes Scholars.
The Rhodes Trust said Sunday the three are among 32 American students who were named Rhodes Scholars and will enter Oxford University next October.
The three are Anna Alekseyeva of St. Louis, who attended the University of Chicago, Fatima Sabar of Ballwin, who attended Stanford, and Priya Sury of Roseville, Minn., who graduated from Washington University.
The scholarships provide all expenses for two or three years of study at Oxford in England. The winners were selected from 837 applicants endorsed by 309 different colleges and universities.
The students will join an international group of scholars selected from 14 other jurisdictions around the world.
