This weekend, Michigan State University senior Craig Pearson will interview for a Rhodes Scholarship.

If he’s chosen, Pearson would become MSU’s 17th Rhodes Scholar.

Current State’s Scott Pohl talked with Pearson about what it takes to become a Rhodes Scholar, and what it would mean to his career if the committee decides to send him to Oxford. He says winners get funding for two to three years of study in any program.
