Master’s students Kate Bradley and Pranav Gurusankar, both ’23, and Sid Suri Dhawan, ’22, will pack their smarty pants and head to Oxford this year. They’ve been named 2024 Rhodes Scholars and plan to study energy systems and economics, applied digital health, and clinical neurosciences, respectively. 

Maybe they can find time for tea with Stanford seniors Jenny Shi and Benjamin Przybocki, recipients of the 2024–25 Churchill Scholarship. Shi will study biological sciences and Przybocki will pursue advanced computer science at the University of Cambridge. 

On the theme of Brits sending love in a westerly direction, Boomitra, founded by Aadith Moorthy, MS ’20, was a winner of Prince William’s 2023 Earthshot Prize, which awards £1 million for innovative solutions to environmental challenges. Boomitra equips farmers to increase their soil carbon and yields as well as secure additional income through carbon credits. 

Speaking of turf, former NFL and Stanford running back Toby Gerhart, ’10, MBA ’20, is the 20th Farm footballer to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
