New Delhi: Mahima Khanna, a 23-year-old from Kolkata, has become the third Indian to win one of Cambridge University's highest honours - the Stevenson Prize.

Khanna topped the 2010-11 MPhil class of economics at Cambridge. Nobel laureate Amartya Sen was the first Indian to win the award in 1956.

Sir Partha Dasgupta, a Cambridge professor emeritus, won it in 1967. Dasgupta was knighted by the queen for his contribution to nutrition and developmental economics.
