Dhananjay Jagannathan Awarded Marshall Scholarship
Posted: November 15, 2008
Dhananjay has been the recipient of the 2005 National Merit Scholarship, the 2006 Larry Temple Scholarship and the 2008 Beinecke Scholarship. He is a member of honors societies Phi Beta Kappa and Eta Sigma Phi. He also participates in Junior Fellows, an honors research seminar for undergraduates, and Euthyphrones, a Greek reading group sponsored by the joint doctorate program in ancient philosophy.
The Marshall Scholarships, established by the British government in 1953 to enable US students to pursue graduate study in Britain, are extremely competitive: only 40 are awarded annually nationwide. Dhananjay, who counts Classics and Philosophy among his multiple majors, plans to use his to pursue an MPhil in Classics at Cambridge, where he will work with the B Caucus in Ancient Philosophy, and study Ancient Philosophy at the University of Oxford as well.
