Rhodes Scholarship


Arguably one of the most prestigious post-graduate scholarships, the Rhodes Scholarship offers two years of study in a degree program at the University of Oxford. Eighty-three scholars are selected each year; thirty-two of these are awarded to scholars from the United States. Scholars are elected in November and enter Oxford in October of the following year.


Rhodes Scholarship provides full financial support to pursue a degree(s) at the University of Oxford.

Internal Application Deadline

Applications are due at the end of Block 5 every year and campus interviews take place in Block 6 or 7. Because of the timing of the process at the higher levels, it is open to Juniors and Seniors -- Juniors who are selected would go the Oxford in the fall after they graduate; Seniors who are selected would have a gap year after they graduate before they go to Oxford.

Please consult with the campus advisors well in advance of this deadline.
