Two Harvard Students Awarded Marshall Scholarships
The 2016 class of Marshall Scholars includes seniors Bianca Mulaney and Rebecca Panovka. Mulaney will study at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE); her research interests include assessment of the economic impact of antimicrobial resistance in agriculture, according to the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, where she served as a Frank Boas Fellow and Undergraduate Associate. Panovka, a resident of Quincy House concentrating in English who will study at the University of Cambridge, has served as editor-in-chief of the Harvard Book Review and a fiction board member of the Harvard Advocate, where she is editing an anthology that will be published in 2016 to celebrate the organization’s 150th anniversary. In March of 2015, she was awarded an artist development scholarship to travel to South Africa and Botswana to intern for Emmy award-winning documentarian Mandy Jacobson to create a short documentary on safari tourism.
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.
