Chris Joseph
Joseph, a former Santa Ynez High standout, started for three years on UCLA’s football team (2005-07) as an offensive lineman. He will do graduate work in geography. The Solvang resident, who had a 3.95 GPA in geography with a focus on the causes of deforestation, graduated in June.

Three other students from California universities were among the 32 men and women across the United States who won the scholarships, the oldest of the international study awards available to U.S. students.

Rhodes Scholarships were created in 1902 by the will of British philanthropist Cecil Rhodes.

Winners are selected on the basis of high academic achievement, personal integrity, leadership potential and physical vigor, among other attributes.

The U.S. students will join an international group of scholars selected from 13 other jurisdictions around the world. About 80 scholars are selected each year.

The value of the Rhodes Scholarship varies depending on the field of study. The total value averages about $50,000 per year.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
