University of Kansas student named Rhodes Scholar

KSAL StaffNovember 20, 2016

A University of Kansas student has been named a Rhodes Scholar to study refugees and forced migration.

The Rhodes Trust announced 32 U.S. recipients of the 2017 awards Sunday.

The Trust said in a release that Shegufta A. Huma, from Bel Aire, is a senior majoring in political science. The Trust says Huma came to the U.S. from Bangladesh, was president of the Muslim Student Association, speaks several languages and “is particularly dedicated to working toward justice for Muslim immigrants.”

The 2017 Rhodes scholars-elect were chosen from nearly 900 applicants. The scholarships cover expenses for two or three years of study at the University of Oxford in England beginning next October.

At Oxford, Huma plans to study refugees and forced migration, as well as public policy.
