Howard Student Awarded Luard Morse Scholarship
to Oxford University
Angel Rogers

WASHINGTON (October 15, 2013) – Howard University student Angel Rogers was awarded the Luard Morse Scholarship and will spend the 2014 spring semester of her junior year studying at Oxford University, St. Edmund’s College, in England.

A biology major from Jacksonville, Fla., Rogers said she plans to pursue a medical degree and a doctorate in biomedical and biochemical studies. She said she would use the knowledge from her training to study disease and disease prevention. Ultimately, she hopes to conduct research and teach at a university with underprivileged students. Among her many achievements, Rogers is involved in the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, Botanical Society of America and  Golden Key International Honors Society.

“I am extremely excited and honored to be selected as a Luard Morse Scholar,” Rogers said. “Howard University has prepared me for this opportunity with rigorous courses and faculty who challenged my thinking processes. Through internships and school organizations, I feel prepared for this life-changing experience.”  

The Luard Morse Scholarship, provided by the English-Speaking Union, is committed to the promotion of scholarship and the advancement of knowledge through the effective use of the English language. Since 1969, it has provided junior year abroad scholarships to the United Kingdom for academically talented sophomore students attending Howard, Hampton University and United Negro College Fund institutions. These students serve as ambassadors for the United States while abroad and for British higher education upon returning home. Candidates for this scholarship must have a minimum of a 3.0 GPA, be a sophomore and be a United States citizen.
