A man from Michigan is among 32 people from across the United States selected as Rhodes Scholars for 2008.

The scholars were selected from 764 applicants endorsed by 294 colleges and universities.

This year's winners include Brett T. Masters of Charlotte, Michigan. He's a senior at Princeton where he majors in comparative literature.

Masters was a finalist for the national Dante prize of the Dante Society of America, and has won prizes in the humanities and in writing.

He writes for the Daily Princetonian, was an organizer of the Gay Family Rights Project and tutors with two local groups. At Oxford University in England he plans to focus on medieval studies.
