Two brothers from SigEp’s Stanford Chapter were selected for prestigious international fellowships this year. In fall 2018, Jelani Munroe, ’16, and Daniel Kilimnik, ’16, will begin their stints as Rhodes and Schwarzman Scholars, respectively.
Munroe, originally from Jamaica, studied economics and public policy at Stanford. He is currently working as the financial manager of the Associated Students of Stanford University and as chief executive officer of Stanford Student Enterprises, which provides grants to more than 600 student organizations on the campus. His honors thesis examined the impact of economic austerity on election strategy during Jamaica’s 2016 general elections. He will pursue a master’s in development studies at Oxford.
Kilimnik, who earned bachelor’s degrees in economics and history, is working as a business analyst with McKinsey & Company in New York. He is a U.S. and German citizen and wrote his honors thesis on the evolving role of the armed forces in German security policy. At Tsinghua University in Beijing, he intends to study the future of European, U.S. and Chinese relations.
