Congratulations to philosophy major and refugee advocate Alice Hauser (‘23) on being awarded a Rhodes Scholarship to study at England’s Oxford University beginning in the fall of 2023!

She was among 32 Americans chosen by the Rhodes Trust who were selected on Nov. 12 from among 840 candidates endorsed by 244 different colleges.

Hauser, from Kennebunk, Maine, plans to pursue a Master in Science in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies and a Master of Philosophy in Law, with the ultimate goal of promoting justice for populations in need.

She is a Stamps Scholar—a recipient of one of Wake Forest’s prestigious Signature Scholarships awarded to exceptional incoming freshmen on the basis of merit—and is the 15th Wake Forest #RhodesScholar since 1986. Two other Wake Forest students and fellow Stamps Scholars Tal Feldman and Ashley Peake were also named finalists for the Rhodes.
