It’s been more than four years since Penn has had a Rhodes Scholar ? but the Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships has revamped the fellowship application process in an effort to add Penn names to the ranks of scholars.
For the first time, Penn put in place a faculty review committee to review and interview applicants for the Rhodes, Marshall and Mitchell Scholarships, three competitive awards for American students to pursue graduate studies in the United Kingdom and Ireland and select finalists to receive Penn’s official endorsement.
Prior to the committee’s instatement, students were welcome to apply and receive Penn’s endorsement so long as they satisfied the minimum requirements for the fellowships.

Penn's General Counsel Wendy White confirmed in an interview after Wednesday's University Council meeting that Penn will implement its new disciplinary process for sexual assaults next semester.
