HUMBOLDT, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota student who attended college in Minnesota has been named a Rhodes Scholar.

Rachel E. Mullin of Humboldt is among 32 American men and women chosen as Rhodes Scholars. The scholarship funds post-graduate studies at Oxford University.

Mullin received her undergraduate degree in political science and history from the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, Minnesota.

Mullin is a Truman Scholar and is focused on understanding and combating the causes of genocide and forced migration. She spent a summer in Bosnia-Herzegovina interviewing Bosniaks, Serbs and Croats to support two undergraduate theses on the 1990s genocide in Bosnia.

Mullin is now teaching English in Malaysia. At Oxford she will pursue post-graduate degrees in refugee and forced migration studies and in global governance and diplomacy.
