Four New Yorkers have been selected among 32 Americans named to the 2017 class of Rhodes Scholars.

The recipients were picked from almost 900 applicants, and receive scholarships covering all expenses for two or three years of postgraduate study at Oxford University in England.

The New York residents are Maia Silber of Cortlandt Manor, New York, a senior at Harvard University, and three New York City residents — Nancy Ko, a senior at Harvard; Sarah Waltcher, a 2016 graduate of Dartmouth University, and Noah Remnick, a 2015 graduate of Yale University.

The American recipients join scholars chosen from around the world, for a total of 95 winners. The scholarships are worth about $68,000 per year.
