Carleton University graduate Caitlin Salvino has been awarded a Rhodes Scholarship and will be attending Oxford University starting in October 2018.
Salvino is one of just six Carleton students ever to receive a Rhodes Scholarship and one of two recipients in Ontario this year. Eleven Rhode Scholarships are awarded each year in Canada.
She will use her time at Oxford to study access to justice while pursuing a BA in Jurisprudence, the equivalent of a Canadian law degree.
Salvino graduated this spring from Carleton in April this year with a BA combined honours in Human Rights and Law.
In addition to academic excellence, Salvino was selected due to her commitment to work outside the classroom, including involvement on campus with Oxfam, founding the Human Rights Society, working in the Senate as a page, studying in Washington DC as a Killam Fellow and co-founding OurTurn: A National Student Movement to End Campus Sexual Violence.
