Hillary Clinton leads seminar at Swansea University

Swansea UniversityHillary Rodham Clinton led a seminar with the first recipients of the Hillary Rodham Clinton Global Challenges Scholarship at Swansea University.

Swansea University launched the scholarship program in partnership with Sky earlier this year, and five exceptional individuals were selected over the summer and granted a fully-funded, postgraduate, one-year scholarship to study at Swansea University’s Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law. The scholarships aim to support the next generation of leaders committed to addressing urgent global challenges, including the rights and protection of children online, the climate crisis and cyber security.

During the seminar, the scholars discussed their areas of research with Mrs Clinton, and shared their hopes and ambitions for the future. They also had the opportunity to ask Mrs Clinton about her own experiences of working as a politician, diplomat and lawyer.

Launching the scholarship program earlier this year, Mrs Clinton said, “I’m delighted that this partnership between Sky and the School of Law at Swansea University will be able to achieve something truly unique, with an urgency that the challenges we face today demand. These scholars will embody our shared values of working together across disciplines and geographic boundaries to improve conditions and opportunities for all, and especially for women, children, the marginalised and the disenfranchised."

Professor Elwen Evans, head of the Hillary Rodham School of Law, said, “The five inaugural Global Challenges scholars are all exceptional individuals and committed advocates for change. They have a range of complementary skills to offer the program and bring global perspectives from Africa, Asia and Europe, as well as local experiences from here in Wales.
