The Rhodes Scholarship is a fully funded, full-time postgraduate grant that allows bright young people from all around the world to study at Oxford.

The Rhodes Trust is a charitable organization that brings together and develops remarkable people who are dissatisfied with the way things are and have the courage to act. The Rhodes Scholarships have been distributed in 20 different constituencies (representing over 60 countries). All applicants must have advanced academic status to ensure completion of a bachelor’s degree.

The application deadline varies per country.

  • Following selection for the Scholarship, the Rhodes Trust will cover the fee required to apply to study at the University of Oxford.

The Rhodes Trust will cover two economy class flights – to and from the UK – for the beginning and end of studies in Oxford.
