Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Three people from California have been named Rhodes Scholars to study at England's Oxford University next October.

Miles Unterreiner, of Santa Barbara, will study international relations. He earned his bachelor's and master's in history from Stanford University in 2012 and 2013. He was a member of the varsity track and field and cross country teams. He also wrote for The Stanford Daily.

Aurora Griffin, of Westlake Village, plans to study theology and Christian ethics. She's a senior at Harvard University where she's studying the classics. She heads the Harvard Catholic Student Association.

Zarko Perovic, of San Diego, will study international relations. A 2012 graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, Perovic grew up in Serbia and learned about war crimes before he knew the meaning.

The awards were announced Sunday.
