Two West Point Cadets Awarded Rhodes Scholarships

Two West Point cadets have been named Rhodes Scholars, joining the ranks this year of 32 winners of the prestigious award.

Cadets Evan Walker and Tyrese Bender, members of the Class of 2021, will further their studies at Oxford University.

“Cadets Tyrese Bender and Evan Walker have both found creative and bold ways to foster diversity, equity and inclusion through their leadership and studies at West Point,” Academic Board Brig. Gen. Cindy Jebb said in a statement. “I look forward to the change and growth they will lead as Rhodes Scholars for the U.S. Army, our nation and the world.”

While at Oxford, Walker intends to earn a master of comparative social policy with a focus on the intersection between policy and inequalities in the workplace and their influence on social inclusion and mobility for racial and gender minorities.

Bender, two-year track team captain and contributor to the inaugural U.S Corps of Cadets Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Strategy, intends to earn a master of philosophy in sociology and evidence-based social intervention and policy evaluation.
