US Rhodes Scholars for 2022 include most women ever selected


According to the Rhodes Trust, the 2022 American Rhodes Fellowship class includes the majority of women ever selected for a one-year scholarship.

Of the 32 students selected to study at Oxford University in England, 22 are women, the Rhodes Trust’s US secretary office said in a statement earlier Sunday.

The selection process ended for almost the second year in a row due to the coronavirus pandemic.

For the first time in a class at Clemson University in South Carolina, a student was selected. Three schools – Claremont McKenna College, Mount Holyoke College and Union College – received a scholarship this year for the first time in at least 25 years.

All 32 fellows were expected to start their studies at Oxford in October. The scholarship covers the financial costs of attending school.

Students must be approved by their college or university and then selected following an application process that includes an interview.
