Two seniors and three alumni named 2021 Schwarzman Scholars

Five Yale affiliates—Trent Kannegieter ’21, Milan Vivanco ’21, Alexander Crich ’19, Mikaela Rabb ’18, and Harry Seavey ’19—were chosen from more than 3,600 applicants for the graduate fellowships, which fund study at Tsinghua University in Beijing. Schwarzman Scholars are selected through a rigorous application process for their leadership potential, academic ability, and strength of character, as well as their potential to bridge cultural and political differences. Kannegieter is studying history and human rights; Vivanco is majoring in ethics, politics, and economics; Crich majored in biomedical engineering and engineering science (materials); Rabb studied global affairs and ethnicity, race, and migration; and Seavey majored in global affairs.

Yale College alumna Keerthana Annamaneni ’20 will begin study next year at Oxford University as one of the 46 winners of the Marshall Scholarship. She was chosen from a record 1,190 applicants for the award, which allows American scholars to study any academic subject for up to three years at a university in the United Kingdom with funding from the British government. Annamaneni majored in political science at Yale, where she was part of the multidisciplinary academic program in human rights. She plans to pursue a master of philosophy degree in political theory at Oxford.
