Marie-Rose Sheinerman, a member of the Class of 2023, has been awarded a Rhodes Scholarship for graduate study at the University of Oxford. She is among 32 American recipients of the prestigious fellowships and will join an international group of Rhodes Scholars chosen from more than 60 countries. 

Sheinerman, of New York City, is concentrating in history and is also pursuing a certificate in Russian, East European and Eurasian studies. At Oxford, she will pursue an MPhil in history.

She is the Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Princetonian, where she manages a staff of more than 300 students, and previously served as a student board member of the Center for Jewish Life at Princeton. She is also a member of the Behrman Undergraduate Society of Fellows, a group of juniors and seniors who are committed to the study of humanistic inquiry.

In 2022, Sheinerman was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Reporting for her contributions to “urgent yet sweeping coverage” of the Champlain Towers South condominium collapse while on staff as an intern at the Miami Herald.
