Two college seniors from Washington state are among 32 U.S. men and women who have won Rhodes Scholarships, the oldest of the international study awards available to American students.
Jason G. Crabtree of Kingston is a civil engineering major at the United States Military Academy, and Aaron M. Polhamus of Bellingham is a public policy major at Stanford University who spent his first two years of college at Western Washington University.
Their scholarships will provide two or three years of study at Oxford University in England.
Crabtree, who has helped design NASA parachute systems, plans to study information engineering. Polhamus, who worked on U.S.-China economic relations as an intern with the U.S. Treasury Department, plans to pursue a degree in development studies.
Rhodes Scholars will begin their studies in October 2008.
