All educational costs for two years of study at Oxford, such as matriculation, tuition, laboratory and certain other fees are paid. Each scholar receives an additional maintenance allowance adequate to meet necessary expenses for term-time and vacations as well as the necessary costs of travel to and from Oxford.
Extraordinary intellectual distinction is a necessary but not a sufficient condition for election to a Rhodes Scholarship. Selection committees are charged to seek excellence in qualities of mind and in qualities of person, which in combination, offer the promise of effective service to the world in the decades ahead. The Rhodes Scholarships are investments in individuals rather than in project proposals. Accordingly, applications are sought from talented students without restriction as to their field of academic specialization or career plans although the proposed course of study must be available at Oxford, and the applicant's undergraduate program must provide a sufficient basis for study in the proposed field.
An applicant must:
- For the US process, be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident or DACA recipient*
- There are Rhodes Scholarships for most other citizenships.
- By October 1 of the year of application, be at least 18 but not yet 24 years of age.
- Have achieved academic standing sufficiently advanced to assure completion of a bachelor’s degree before October 1 of the year of application.
*Note: If you are an international student, please be in touch with NCS-OUSF if you would like to apply in another country.
