Honors student Juliet Elizabeth Allan of Atlanta was awarded a 2013 Rhodes Scholarship to attend England’s Oxford University, where she plans to pursue a master’s degree in modern Middle Eastern studies. She is one of 32 Rhodes recipients in the United States.
Allan, who is a UGA Foundation Fellow, plans to graduate from UGA in December with bachelor’s degrees in Arabic, economics, and international affairs as well as a master’s degree in international policy.
She is UGA’s fourth Rhodes Scholar in the past six years and the 23rd from UGA overall.
Allan is a member of UGA’s chapter of the Roosevelt Institute, a national student-run think tank, where she has written papers about energy policy and education and has also taught policy analysis to undergraduates. Allan has participated in the university’s Center for Undergraduate Research Symposium and presented results of her research on employment dynamics at two national conferences. She has also interned at the university’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government, through which she traveled to China during an annual training program the institute conducts in Beijing.
She has served as the co-director of the Thomas Lay After School Tutoring Program, where more than 100 UGA students provide educational help to elementary and middle-school students in Athens each semester. She also has researched issues involving early childhood education. She is a Presidential Scholar and member of the Phi Kappa Phi, Palladia and Blue Key honor societies.
