University of Notre Dame seniors Sofia Carozza and Katie Gallagher have been named 2019 Marshall Scholars. Carozza, of South Bend, Indiana, will study neuroscience at the University of Cambridge. Gallagher, of Naperville, Illinois, will study math at the University of Oxford. They are the University’s eighth and ninth Marshall Scholars overall and two of 10 Notre Dame students awarded one of the prestigious open-discipline British scholarships — Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell and Gates Cambridge — since 2013.
“Sofia Carozza and Katie Gallagher epitomize the commitment to scholarship and social engagement that Notre Dame reveres, said University president Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C. “None is more deserving of this high recognition than Sofia and Katie. Congratulations to them, to their professors and the Flately Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement (CUSE) staff who supported them.”
“We are so happy to congratulate Katie and Sofia on their selection as 2019 Marshall Scholars. They are extraordinary individuals who exemplify both the Marshall Scholarship criteria of ‘academic merit, leadership potential and ambassadorial potential’ and the Marshall Scholar characteristics of ‘talented, independent and wide-ranging,’” said Jeffrey Thibert, Paul and Maureen Stefanick Director of CUSE at Notre Dame. “They will truly both use their platforms as Marshall Scholars to enrich the world, and we thank all the members of the Notre Dame community who have played a role in their academic, professional and personal development.”
CUSE promotes the intellectual development of Notre Dame undergraduates through scholarly engagement, research, creative endeavors and the pursuit of fellowships and assisted Carozza and Gallagher with the application process.
