Ranjan is currently a resident assistant at Georgetown, will pursue her postgraduate studies at the University of Oxford.
U.K. Foreign Office Minister Alok Sharma said there is a 25 percent increase in the number of U.S. post-graduate students joining the U.K.'s prestigious Marshall Scholarships program. The program's initial plan was to select 32.
"This increase in scholarships shows how resolute Britain is in its commitment to the special relationship. And, of course, our Marshall Scholars retain a lifelong warmth for the U.K.," Sharma said in a statement.
The Marshall Scholarship program was created in 1953 by the British government to thank the American people for the assistance given to the U.K. after WWII through the European Recovery Program, commonly known as the Marshall Plan.
Scholars are selected to study at post-graduate level at any British university, in any field of study. There are currently around 1900 alumni of the program, many of whom hold leading positions in political life, academia and business in the U.S.
