Before he left for Oxford, Philadelphia’s own Hazim Hardeman and Temple’s first Rhodes Scholar Hazim Hardeman stopped by to tell us his story and much more! This is the most prestigious scholarship a college student can receive, and we couldn’t be more proud and excited for one of the select few to come from our backyard!
What is a Rhodes Scholar you ask?! According to http://www.rhodesscholar.org/,
The Rhodes Scholarships are the oldest and most celebrated international fellowship awards in the world. Each year 32 young students from the United States are selected as Rhodes Scholars, through a decentralized process representing the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories. Applicants from more than 320 American colleges and universities have been selected as Rhodes Scholars. In most years, even after a century of competition, a Rhodes Scholar is selected from an institution which has not formerly supplied a successful applicant.
We will keep you updated with his journey and can’t wait to see what lies in the future for Hazim!
