The Rhodes Scholarship is a postgraduate award that provides opportunities for transformational education.
Ritika Mukherjee, an alumnus of Amity International School, Noida, has been selected among the five Rhodes Scholars of India selected for 2022.
Currently, Ritika, a final year student of Zoology at Miranda House, Delhi University, has completed her schooling at Amity International School Noida (2018-19 batch) where her love for biology has blossomed.
Expressing her excitement, Ritika said, “I would like to express my sincere gratitude to our Chairperson Dr. Amita Chauhan Mum for providing me with a wonderful platform to nurture my talents and respect my skills. My self-confidence and the development of my personality in Amity have helped me achieve this goal. Although the exact area of my application will be finalized in consultation with the Rhodes Trust as Oxford, I would like to pursue Neuroscience. I am deeply interested in Indian classical voice, western electric keyboard, a capella song, roller hockey, skating, science communication and wildlife videography. “
