Rhodes Scholarships, the oldest international fellowship program, provide for one, two, or occasionally three years of post-baccalaureate study at the University of Oxford. There are few restrictions as to field of study, but the proposed course must be available at Oxford and applicants must be academically prepared to undertake the course.
There are four main criteria for selection:
- academic distinction,
- service to others, and
- physical vigor.
Applicants must be citizens of the U.S., Canada, or another country participating in the scholarship program, and under the age of 24 at the time of application.
Visit www.rhodesscholar.org for more information about the Scholarships.
