Morehouse College student Prince Abudu has been selected to the 2016 International Rhodes Scholar class representing his home country of Zimbabwe. The Rhodes Scholarship supports students who demonstrate a strong propensity to emerge as future leaders.
Abudu is the fourth Morehouse student to be selected for the prestigious scholarship to attend the University of Oxford in England. Morehouse is the only Historically Black College represented in the 2016 Rhodes Scholar Class and one of only two Georgia Colleges in this year’s prestigious class. The Rhodes Scholarship provides for two or three years of study at Oxford. Abudu, whose email signatureDestinato Alla Gloria, “Destined for Greatness,” best girds his determination to excel. The Morehouse leader plans to pursue a master’s degree in computer science and a MBA at Oxford.
“I’m blessed and excited. This would not have been possible without the support of my family in Zimbabwe and the new family I have been favored with at Morehouse College. This is an opportunity that I have dreamed of all my life,” said Abudu, who grew up on a rural farm in his homeland.
