Agnes Scott College senior Madison Jennings has been announced as one of the winners of the 2024 Rhodes Scholarship. This prestigious award will allow Madison to join an international group of scholars selected from 25 other jurisdictions worldwide, and will fund her postgraduate studies at Oxford University in the United Kingdom next fall.
The Rhodes Scholarship, which has an average total value of $75,000 per year, will cover all of Madison's Oxford tuition and fees, as well as a stipend for expenses and vacations while she is there. Additionally, it will cover the cost of transportation to and from England.
In preparation for the scholarship, Madison wrote about how her leadership skills have influenced her academic and professional pursuits. She has a strong passion for grassroots organizing and policy change, and hopes to leverage her community-based models to demonstrate how local dynamics can inform global policies.
Madison has already achieved a great deal in her academic and professional life. She is the president of the pre-law society, a Carter Center intern, and the project executive for the Pop Up Library for Peace - a mobile outdoor library for the Savannah community. She has conducted research on international law in Afghanistan, maternal health policy in Georgia, workplace sexual harassment laws, and public safety legislation.
Agnes Scott College President Leocadia I. Zak is incredibly proud of Madison and all of her accomplishments. "At Agnes Scott, we focus on educating our students to be global citizens and inclusive leaders. Madison is a true example of both," she said. "We know that she will continue to lead and to make a difference today and tomorrow."
In addition to her political science degree, Madison is also completing a minor in religious studies, a Global Learning Specialization, and has led three ballet productions as a classically trained dancer. Madison's ambition is to work as a policy director and focus on developing a comprehensive and empathetic humanitarian policy with a global influence.
We congratulate Madison on her outstanding achievement and wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors!
