Two Stanford University students, who both happen to be musicians, have won prestigious Marshall scholarships sponsored by the British government.
Sean Arenson, 21, who is majoring in economics and biological sciences and plays the jazz saxophone, plans to study health economics at the London School of Economics.
Priyanka Narayan, 20, who has majored in chemistry and played violin for the Stanford Symphony Orchestra for four years, plans to study chemistry at the University of Cambridge.
Both students are seniors.
The Marshall Scholarships were established in 1953 as a way of thanking the United States for the Marshall Plan, which helped Europe recover after World War II.
