Princeton University seniors Mikaela Gerwin and Rachel Linfield have been awarded Gates Cambridge Scholarships. The awards give outstanding students from outside the United Kingdom the opportunity to pursue postgraduate study at the University of Cambridge. The program was established in 2000 by a donation from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to Cambridge to build a global network of future leaders committed to improving the lives of others.

The recipients are among 34 U.S. winners of the scholarship. A total of 90 scholarships are typically awarded each year, with international winners selected in the spring.
