Rhodes Scholarships For International Students At University Of Oxford 2015

Brief description:

The Rhodes Scholarships are postgraduate awards supporting exceptional all-round students at the University of Oxford.   Established in the will of Cecil Rhodes in 1902, the Rhodes is the oldest and perhaps the most prestigious international scholarship program in the world.

Host Institution(s):

Oxford University in UK

Fields of study:

Rhodes Scholars come from many academic backgrounds and pursue a wide variety of courses at Oxford.  Applicants should review the Oxford’s postgraduate degree courses to determine the degree for which they would apply.

There are very few restrictions on the full-time post-graduate degrees supported by Rhodes Scholarships.  Rhodes Scholars may only undertake the Master of Business Administration or the Master of Financial Economics in the second year of the Scholarship.

Number of Scholarships:

A class of 83 Scholars is selected each year

Target group:

Students from Australia, Bermuda, Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Jamaica and Commonwealth Caribbean, Kenya, New Zealand, Pakistan, Southern Africa (including South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, and Swaziland), United Arab Emirates, United States, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

Scholarship value/inclusions:

A Rhodes Scholarship covers all University and College fees, the university application fee, a personal stipend for living expenses (£13,658 per annum 2014-15), and economy class airfare to and from Oxford at the commencement and conclusion of the scholarship.

Eligibility:

The following eligibility criteria apply to all applicants for the Rhodes Scholarships:

• Citizenship & residency: Each applicant must fulfil the citizenship and residency requirements of the Rhodes constituency for which they are applying.  Please check the detailed information carefully via the country links.

• Age: Age limits vary between constituencies and range from a minimum age limit of 18 to a maximum of 28 by 1 October of the year following selection. In most constituencies, the age limit is 24 or 25. Please check carefully the specific age requirements for your constituency before applying.  Successful candidates will arrive in Oxford the October following the selection process.  The Scholarship may not normally be deferred.

• Education: All applicants must have achieved academic standing sufficiently advanced to assure completion of a bachelor’s degree by the October following election. Academic standing must be sufficiently high to ensure admission to the University of Oxford, which has very competitive entry requirements, and to give confidence that Rhodes Scholars will perform to a high academic standard in Oxford. Individual constituencies may specify a 1st or equivalent.  Some constituencies require an undergraduate degree to have been taken within the constituency of application.

Application instructions:

All candidates for the Scholarship should read the information about the Scholarships applicable globally, and then proceed to their country-specific page to read the application criteria, eligibility requirements, and deadline specific to their country. Applications for Rhodes Scholarships open during the spring and summer of the preceding year.Deadline varies per country but is aroundJuly-October of the preceding year you wish to study.
