Yale University Department of Political Science visiting student Nyasha Mukonoweshuro, from Zimbabwe, who came to Yale as a 2023-24 Henry Fellow after graduating from Loughborough University in England, has been awarded a Rhodes Scholarship.

As the recipient of a Henry Fellowship, which supports one year of postgraduate study at Yale, she is now taking classes in Yale’s Department of Political Science and Yale Law School.
