Two New York City residents are among the 32 American students selected as the newest Rhodes Scholars and will be getting scholarships to study at Oxford University.
 
The names were announced Sunday. They include Jennifer Bright, a senior at Yale University, and Aidan Daly, a senior at Harvard University.

  The prestigious awards provide all expenses for up to four years of study at the university in England. The winners were selected from 838 applicants endorsed by 302 different colleges and universities. The scholars will enter Oxford next October.
 
Rhodes Scholarships were created in 1902 by the will of British philanthropist Cecil Rhodes and have a value of about $50,000 per year.
 
The American students will join an international group of scholars selected from around the world.
