About Rhodes Scholarships
The Rhodes Scholarship is the oldest (first awarded in 1902) and perhaps most prestigious international scholarship programme, enabling outstanding young people from around the world to study at the University of Oxford.
Find out if you meet the criteria to become a Rhodes Scholar and start your application. We offer scholarships in over 22 designated Rhodes constituencies, as well as our Global Rhodes Scholarships, visit our ‘Which Scholarship’ page for more details.
The Rhodes Scholarship supports exceptional young people for postgraduate study at the University of Oxford, and actively fosters lifelong learning and fellowship.
With 100 Rhodes Scholarships available per year for postgraduate study at the University of Oxford, this page will help you to make sure that you are applying for the most appropriate Rhodes Scholarship.
The Rhodes Scholarships for Global (Any other country/region)
Until recently, the Rhodes Scholarships have been awarded in 20 constituencies (representing over 60 different countries). Now the Rhodes Scholarships are fully global: two new Global Scholarships allow eligible candidates from the rest of the world to apply (subject to nomination).
General information on the preparation of an application for a Rhodes Scholarship can be found across the pages under the Scholarship tab. It is important that you read the information on the ‘Which Scholarship?‘ page to ensure that you meet the eligibility criteria for the Global Rhodes Scholarships. Please also read the detailed Information for Candidates by clicking the link below.
You can now request and receive a nomination through the application form itself – you will not be able to submit an application for a Global Rhodes Scholarship unless a nomination has been received.
Your eligibility for the Global Scholarship must also be confirmed by a member of the Rhodes House team. This will be done through the application form but you will only be able to submit once you have received approval.
