3 Calif. students among Rhodes Scholars

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Three college students from California are among 32 U.S. students who will be awarded the prestigious Rhodes scholarship to study at Oxford University next Fall.

Larkspur native Catherine Laporte-Oshiro, Daniel Price of Grass Valley and Bakersfield's Evan Szablowski were among the Rhodes Scholars announced on Sunday. The scholars are selected based on a core set of criteria: academic achievement, personal integrity, leadership potential and physical vigor.

A senior majoring in ethics, politics and economics at Yale University, Laporte-Oshiro will pursue an advanced degree in modern Chinese studies at Oxford.

Price will graduate from the University of California, Berkeley, with two degrees, one in bioengineering, and one in electrical engineering and computer sciences. At Oxford he will continue his bioengineering studies.

He said he will focus on researching and developing medical devices that are “accessible to all demographics.”

Szablowski majors in mathematics at the United States Military Academy. He hopes to get a master's degree in mathematical modeling and scientific computing. He said he hopes to eventually work in military intelligence.

The scholarships provide all expenses for study at the prestigious university in England.
