Johns Hopkins Senior Wins Prestigious Marshall Scholarship

Share the News


Winning the Marshall Scholarship is a big deal — such a big deal, in fact, that only 34 students across the country were awarded the prize this year. And one of them is Frederick native and Johns Hopkins student Anna Wherry.

As you might expect, Wherry has a pretty impressive background and high-minded academic and professional interests. She’s already been awarded a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship, which she used to travel to Colombia to work with human rights lawyers working on behalf of displaced people. It’s a subject that’s particularly close to Wherry’s heart, as her two younger siblings were adopted from Colombia.

Wherry plans to use her scholarship to enroll in Oxford, where she’ll enroll in the university’s Refugee and Forced Migration Studies program, while simultaneously getting a Master’s in social anthropology from the University of Edinburgh.
