NEW YORK (AP) - The son of actress and activist Mia Farrow and director Woody Allen has been chosen as a Rhodes Scholar.

Ronan Farrow is among 32 American students who will be awarded scholarships to study at Oxford University. It’s not the first academic distinction for Farrow, who is a special adviser to the Secretary of State for global youth issues.

He had started college as a child, graduating from Bard College in 2004 when he was 15. He started Yale Law School when he was 17 and graduated in 2009.

He’s also worked as special adviser for humanitarian and NGO affairs in the State Department’s Office of the Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The Rhodes scholarships provide all expenses for study at the prestigious university in England.
