Texas Christian University senior Caylin Moore is one of 32 recipients across the United States to receive the opportunity to study next fall at Oxford University, where he will complete his graduate studies in public policy and business administration.
Moore overcame a number of obstacles to earn an academic scholarship at TCU. His life story reads like the jacket of a book: a young man who comes from a poverty-stricken and abusive family in a gang-infested neighborhood in South Central Los Angeles who has achieved success both academically and athletically through hard work and perseverance. He began his undergraduate studies at Marist College in New York, where he also played football. He transferred to TCU before start of the 2015 season and is a safety on the Horned Frogs football team.
Moore, who has a 3.9 grade-point average, also was offered the Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Graduate Fellowship.
Scheduled to graduate in May, Moore is majoring in economics in the AddRan College of Liberal Arts and minoring in mathematics and sociology.
