Leah Crowder, a graduate of the University of Arizona, was selected as a Rhodes Scholar. She is just one of only 32 recipients chosen from the U.S. to attend Oxford University on a full scholarship.

Crowder graduated in May with a Bachelor of Arts in Middle-Eastern and North African Studies. She has been working in Turkey since she was a teenager helping people displaced by political and cultural conflict.

The Rhodes Scholarship comes from a British Charity to honor the will of Cecil J. Rhodes, a 19th-century business magnate and politician. The scholarship is given to those who have shown a commitment and dedication to a betterment of the world.

Intellect, character, leadership, commitment to service and awareness of inequity are some of the characteristics that Crowder was chosen for.

Crowder will head to Oxford in the fall to pursue her doctorate in international relations. She also recently received the UA 2018 Global Excellence Award in recognition of her contribution to the field of global education and service.
