    Michigan State University has four finalists for a pair of highly competitive graduate school scholarships - two for the Mitchell Scholarship and two for the Rhodes Scholarship. MSU's Mitchell Scholarship finalists are: Joel Arnold, a recent graduate with degrees in social relations and policy from James Madison College and urban and regional planning from the College of Social Science; and Margaret Born, an Honors College senior majoring in comparative cultures and politics in James Madison College and Arabic in the College of Arts and Letters. The U.S.-Ireland Alliance established the George J. Mitchell Scholarship Program, which allows up to 12 future American leaders to pursue a year of graduate study in Ireland and Northern Ireland. MSU has produced one Mitchell Scholar to date. "I am honored to have been named a national finalist in this very competitive process," Arnold said.
