Two Harvardians Named Marshall Scholars
The 2013 class of Marshall Scholars includes Aditya Balasubramanian ’12 (’13), of Leverett House and Bethesda, Maryland, and Alex Palmer ’12, a former Quincy House resident, of Elm Grove, Illinois. Balasubramanian, a history concentrator, plans to study at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Palmer, who concentrated in social studies, will attend King's College London. The scholarships support two years of study toward a degree in the United Kingdom, but may be extended by the Marshall Commission for a third year.
With two scholars each, Harvard and the U.S. Naval Academy led a wide geographical range of institutions celebrating this year’s 34 winners. The other Ivy League winners hailed from Brown, Columbia, and Princeton.
