Angel Rogers, a Biology Major at Howard University in Washington, D.C., has been awarded the English-Speaking Union Luard Morse Scholarship. The merit-based scholarship provides full tuition for a semester abroad at an English University to deserving students attending United Negro College Fund institutions, or Hampton and Howard Universities.
Since the inaugural 1969-70 academic year, 71 Luard Scholars have performed with distinction at 18 British universities, including Oxford University, Cambridge University, Edinburgh University, Nottingham University, and the London School of Economics and Political Science. The scholarship is open to sophomore students in all disciplines and has been awarded to students majoring in economics, philosophy, finance, mathematics, liberal arts and the sciences.
Angel Rogers, the 72nd Luard Morse scholar, plans to pursue a doctorate in laboratory pathology and medicine. Ultimately, she hopes to conduct research and teach at a university in an underprivileged community. Among her many achievements, Rogers is Vice President of the Ecological Society of America, Howard Chapter and an Environmental Biology Scholar – National Science Foundation Fellowship.
