Two Canadian Dartmouth Students Chosen as Rhodes Scholars
Dec 04, 2013 | by Sarah Brubeck | Valley News
Two Dartmouth College seniors from Canada have been named Rhodes Scholars and will become students at Oxford University in England next fall.
Jonathan Pedde and Joseph Singh are two of 11 scholars chosen from Canada. The scholarship is known to be one of the most prestigious postgraduate academic awards given to college graduates. The scholarship pays all graduate program expenses and students are selected from around the world.
Dartmouth’s last Rhodes Scholar was Gabrielle Emanuel, who was awarded the scholarship in fall 2010. Dartmouth has had 75 Rhodes Scholars, including Pedde and Singh, since the program began in 1903.
Pedde, of Regina, Saskatchewan, is a economics and mathematics double major with a minor in engineering sciences at Dartmouth, and he is planning to receive a master’s degree in economics from Oxford. He said in an interview on Monday that he’d like to work in public policy, acting as a bridge between academia and policy making.
