U of I Senior named Rhodes Scholar

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- A University of Iowa student has been selected as a Rhodes Scholar.

20-year-old Renugan Raidoo is a senior at Iowa, and one of 32 students in the United States to get the scholarship.  That means he'll go to Oxford University in England for two to three years -- all expenses paid.

Raidoo will seek a master of philosophy degree in social anthropology.

The value of the scholarship averages about $50,000 per year.
