Award Details

Rhodes Scholarships provide all expenses for two or three years of study at the University of Oxford in England. Rhodes Scholarships are the oldest and most celebrated international fellowship awards in the world, and Scholars are chosen not only for their outstanding scholarly achievements (3.9-4.0 GPA), but for their character, commitment to others and to the common good, and for their potential for leadership in whatever domains their careers may lead.
