Santiago Potes was the first Latino DACA recipient among 32 Americans to receive the Rhodes Scholarship last year — one of the oldest and most prestigious international scholarship programs in the world. It allows college students to study at Oxford University in England.
As a 2021 Rhodes Scholar, Potes will study at the University of Oxford. His parents settled in Miami after fleeing Colombia when he was 4. He is a new graduate of Columbia University in New York.
