UNIVERSITY OF RICHMOND — Three University of Richmond seniors will receive all-expenses-paid scholarships to pursue master’s degrees at the University of Oxford. The scholarships are awarded from the Jepson School of Leadership Studies, the first undergraduate leadership studies program in the nation, as part of the Jepson Scholars Program.

The 2021 Jepson Scholars include:
Alec Greven, of Castle Rock, Colorado, who will pursue a Master of Public Policy.
Keeley Harris, of Brookhaven, Georgia, who will pursue a Master of Studies in Theology.
Kexin Li, of Chongqing, China, who will pursue a Master of Science in Contemporary Chinese Studies.

The Jepson Scholars Program, which covers tuition, room, board, and fees for the one-year master’s programs, is made possible through a donation by Jepson School benefactors Robert S. Jepson Jr. and Alice Andrews Jepson.

“The Jepsons’ vision for educating future global leaders — a vision I share — catapulted to the next level with the creation of the Jepson Scholars Program in 2019,” said Sandra Peart, dean of the Jepson School and president of the Jepson Scholars Foundation. “Building upon the Jepson School’s unique, ground-breaking education, the Jepson Scholars Program offers our students the chance to prepare further for leadership roles in a variety of fields through their studies at the renowned University of Oxford.”
