Mark Dlugash ’08


Mark Dlugash ’08 has been named a Rhodes Scholar—the seventh Swarthmorean to receive the scholarship since 2000. The New York state resident who graduated with highest honors and received the Ivy Award for his outstanding leadership, scholarship, and contributions to the College community, plans to pursue a master’s in forced migration at Oxford. “Mark’s commitment to raising awareness about global issues such as malaria and forced migration define this young man’s drive and passion, and we are so very proud of his achievements,” says College President Rebecca Chopp. “He is destined to be a leader in his field and in the global community.” After graduating, Dlugash was awarded the first annual Seth Green Social Entrepreneur Fellowship and worked at the U.S. Public Service Academy in Washington, D.C. While at Swarthmore, Dlugash co-founded Global Heath Forum, an organization that raises awareness about malaria in Uganda and raises funds for malaria prevention. He also tutored local children, helped low-income city residents file tax returns, and provided hospital support for the elderly in Philadelphia.
