John Scotti, a 2007 graduate of The Bishop’s School, is one of three students at the University of Chicago to be named a 2010 – 2011 Rhodes Scholar.

Scotti will graduate this winter with a bachelor of arts in chemistry, a bachelor of science in bio-chemistry and a master of science in chemistry.

Scotti aspires to become a professor at a research university so he can pursue work to develop human therapeutic agents. He anticipates beginning a doctor of philosophy program in organic chemistry at Oxford next fall.

The Rhodes Scholarship, named after Cecil Rhodes, is an international post-graduate award for study at the University of Oxford. Thirty-two American men and women have been named 2010 – 2011 Rhodes Scholars.

Scotti is the son of Nadine and Louis Scotti.
