Rice Marshall Scholar to Study Health Technology, Policy and Economics

Rice University senior Rahul Rekhi ’13 is one of 34 students across the U.S. selected for a 2013 Marshall Scholarship. Rekhi, who is majoring in both bioengineering and economics at Rice, will use the scholarship to complete a Master of Science degree in international health policy at the London School of Economics and a Master of Science degree in bioengineering at Oxford University.

The scholarship, founded by an Act of Parliament in 1953 to commemorate the humane ideals of the Marshall Plan, allows American students to pursue two years of graduate study at any institution in the United Kingdom. Marshall Scholars are selected on the basis of academic merit, leadership and ambassadorial potential.

“I’m very excited by the opportunity to conduct cutting-edge translational research at Oxford’s Institute of Biomedical Engineering, where scientists, engineers and physicians from around the world collaborate to develop the next generation of therapeutic technologies,” Rekhi said.
