Nothing speaks to the protected value of your college investment like the success of a college’s alumni. Earlham ranks 29th —ninth in life sciences — among 1,533 institutions of higher learning in the United States in the percentage of graduates who go on to receive Ph.D.s. And that doesn’t include the many Earlham graduates who attend the nation’s top medical, law and business professional schools.
In addition, Earlham graduates from the past five years have earned such prestigious awards as the Rhodes Scholarship, the Fulbright teaching assistantship, the Watson Fellowship, the National Science Foundation Pre-Doctoral Fellowship, the Samuel Huntington Public Service Award, and a Fellowship at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
In 2016, the Clinton Global Initiative awarded the $1 million Hult Prize to the Earlham “Magic Bus” team out of over 25,000 entries. The Magic Bus team will implement its idea for improving transportation in developing nations. Earlham alumni are making an impact in all 50 states and over 60 countries as scientists, executives, teachers, lawyers, ministers, writers and concerned, involved citizens.
