Lindsay Lee, a senior studying math and Spanish, has been named a Rhodes Scholar, the most prestigious international award a student can earn. Lee, of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, is one of thirty-two American students chosen from 857 endorsed by 327 colleges and universities. She is the seventh UT student to receive the honor in the Rhodes program’s 111-year history. Lee will begin all-expenses-paid studies at the University of Oxford in England next fall. She plans to study statistics for applications in public health.
Lee is a Haslam Scholar—the university’s most prestigious scholarship. She also receives the Steve and Laura Morris Scholarship. She has studied abroad in Barcelona and Tokyo and conducted research at UT’s National Institute of Mathematical and Biological Synthesis, at Vanderbilt Medical Center, and at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. She was also a national finalist for the Truman Scholarship earlier in 2013.
