PENN NOTABLES

Selected Awards and Honors to Penn Students:
Rhodes Scholarships

Rhodes Scholarships, the oldest international fellowships, have been awarded by the Rhodes Scholarship Trust since the death of Cecil Rhodes in 1902. Penn student Ellis T. Robins was among the first group of Americans named as scholars in 1904. The Rhodes Scholarship provides for two years of study at the University of Oxford, England. Students are selected on the basis of a combination of intellectual excellence and personal character offering promise of outstanding service to the world.

This list of Penn undergraduates who have received Rhodes Scholarships was originally compiled by Claire Cowen, Associate Director of International Fellowships at Penn's Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships (CURF), with confirmation from the American Rhodes Scholarship Trust in Washington, D.C.
