Penelope Lusk, a Ph.D. candidate at Penn GSE, has been awarded a 2024 Queen Elizabeth Scholarship, which covers all fees and provides a stipend of 16,000 pounds, or about $20,000, for a year of study at the University of Oxford in England.

The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship, made possible by funding from Walter Annenberg, is awarded to outstanding students of Penn and Oxford, which alternate sending one Ph.D. student to the other university as a non-degree visiting student. Applicants must be at the dissertation stage or in the final stages of coursework in pursuit of a Ph.D. in any subject taught at Oxford University. A committee of Penn faculty select the Queen Elizabeth Scholar.

Lusk, from Brooklyn, New York, is a Ph.D. candidate in education, culture, and society at Penn GSE with a graduate certificate in gender, sexuality, and women’s studies.
