Three MIT students-the most in many years-have been awarded Marshall scholarships to study in Great Britain next year. They were among 40 selected from a nationwide pool of approximately 900 students recommended by their respective colleges and universities.
Scholarship recipients were:
- Danielle Goodman of Bethesda, MD, a senior in political science. She plans to earn a master's degree in public health at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland before going on to medical school.
- Lik Mui of San Leandro, CA, a 1994 graduate in electrical engineering and a first-year student in the Harvard/MIT Health Sciences and Technology program. He wants to earn a master's degree in the Engineering, Economics and Management program at Oxford University, then return to the HST program to complete a PhD and an MD.
- Jeffrey Tomasi of West Haven, CT, a senior in physics. He plans to pursue an advanced degree at Cambridge University in preparation for an academic career in high-energy physics.
