UA students Jeannie Wilkening and Travis Sawyer have been named Churchill Scholars for the 2016-2017 academic year, each receiving one of 15 scholarships awarded nationally.

Two University of Arizona seniors have won prestigious Churchill Scholarships to complete a one-year master's degree program at the University of Cambridge in England.

UA College of Engineering majors Travis Sawyer and Jeannie Wilkening, both students in the Honors College, are two of only 15 Churchill Scholars selected in 2016-2017 for outstanding academic achievement and proven research talent in science, engineering or mathematics.

"I think it speaks to the quality of the engineering program at the UA," Sawyer said.
