College senior Jain wins 2011 Marshall Scholarship

Emory University senior Shivani Jain has been awarded the 2011 Marshall Scholarship for graduate study in England. The sociology major plans to study global health and economic development at University College London, health policy at Cambridge University, and infectious disease control at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Competition for Marshall Scholarships is extremely rigorous, and more than 800 candidates in the United States are interviewed each year for the exclusive awards. The scholarships finance up to 40 young Americans of high ability to study for a degree at the university of their choice in the United Kingdom for two years. Jain is the second consecutive Emory student to receive the scholarship and the 14th overall from the university.
