Gabrielle Emanuel ’10 of Evanston, Ill., was awarded the prestigious Rhodes Scholarship on November 20.

The Rhodes Scholarship is the oldest and best known award for international study and widely considered the highest post-graduate academic award available to American college graduates. The scholarship pays all expenses for two or three years of study at the University of Oxford in England. Emanuel is the seventy-third Dartmouth graduate to receive a Rhodes Scholarship.

Emanuel plans to pursue a DPhil in development studies to examine the ethics of development aid to foreign countries.

“Traveling and working abroad I have always felt both joy and unease about the potential of development aid to do good and cause harm,” Emanuel says. “It is a great privilege to look at these questions in depth with scholars and colleagues” at Oxford.
