Santa Monica native Max Kleiman-Weiner, currently enrolled at Stanford University, has been chosen to receive a highly competitive Marshall Scholarship. Starting next fall, Max will study for a “Dphil” in neuroscience at Oxford University. Over 100 students applied for the five scholarships administered by the Los Angeles Regional Selection Committee.
The Marshall Scholarship Program is a UK government-financed program that offers talented young Americans the chance to study for up to three years at a British university of their choice. Prominent past Marshall Scholars include: United States Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, Providence psychiatrist Peter Kramer (Listening to Prozac), and Pulitzer Prize-winning authors Tom Friedman of the New York Times and Dan Yergin (The Prize).
The Mirror congratulates Max on his achievement!
