Rhodes Scholarship

The Rhodes Scholarships, established in 1902, are intended to strengthen ties between the UK and the rest of the English-speaking world and to assist the careers of those seeking to advance the public good. This highly prestigious award enables a student to study at Oxford University for two years. An excellent academic record is important, but equally important are certain personal qualities: a demonstrated ability to lead, a commitment to serving the wider community, physical vigor, and, in general, energy, ambition, and success in fields of endeavor other than academic study. Thirty-two American Rhodes scholars are selected each year.
