Since the first American Rhodes Scholars were named in 1904, Dartmouth has had 72 Rhodes winners. The busiest years were 1948, 1968, and 2002, when three Rhodes winners from the College were selected in each of those years. The first Dartmouth woman selected for a Rhodes was Mary Cleary ’79, in 1980. See a list of the winners. Rhodes Scholars are elected for two years of study at the University of Oxford, with the possibility of renewal for a third year. All educational costs, such as matriculation, tuition, laboratory and certain other fees, are paid on the Scholar's behalf by the Rhodes Trustees.
