Four Jackson School affiliates have been awarded fellowships for graduate study in the United Kingdom, including Yale College seniors Anjali Mangla, Sophie Kane, Galia Newberger and Vijay Pathak.

Mangla, who is completing a double major in neuroscience and global affairs, received a Rotary Global Grant Scholarship that will allow her to pursue a master’s degree in global health policy at London School of Tropical Hygiene and Medicine and London School of Economics. She is interested in global health policymaking, particularly in investigating sustainable financing mechanisms for global health care policy and community-based initiatives.

A Global Health Scholar at Jackson, Mangla traveled to Liberia this spring as part of her Jackson School senior capstone project, which examined global health funding for low- and middle-income countries. She hopes to pioneer sustainable global health financing policies with a focus on mitigating noncommunicable diseases.

Kane, Newberger and Pathak all participated in the school’s Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy, a year-long course that addresses large-scale, long-term strategic challenges of statecraft, politics, and social change.

Kane, an American studies major aspiring to a career at the intersection of law and social policy, was awarded a Rotary Global Grant Scholarship. In the fall, she will begin a master’s degree program in comparative social policy at Oxford, investigating targeted universalism as a strategic tool to reinvent American welfare.

Pathak, an ethics, politics, and economics major, will pursue studies in European politics and international conflict prevention, also thanks to a Rotary Scholarship. His academic interests lie at the intersections of statecraft, international law, and the foreign and security policies of the EU and U.S.

Newberger, a humanities and political science double major, was awarded the King’s-Yale Fellowship to pursue a master’s degree in politics and international studies at the University of Cambridge. She will study the rise of illiberalism in Central and Eastern Europe, particularly in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia.
