Subject : Fall 2017 Rhodes Scholarships at Oxford University

Abstract :

APPLICATION DEADLINE IS MARCH 15, 2017. The Rhodes Scholarships, the 
oldest international educational fellowships, were initiated after 
the death of Cecil Rhodes in 1902 and bring outstanding students from 
many countries around the world to the University of Oxford for 2 to 
3 years. Use the link for complete details.

Full Message :

Extraordinary intellectual distinction is a necessary but not a sufficient 
condition for election to a Rhodes Scholarship. Applicants need to 
demonstrate a commitment to making a difference. The Rhodes Scholarships are 
investments in individuals rather than in project proposals. Applications 
may come from talented students without restriction on their field of 
academic specialization or career plans. The proposed course of study must 
be available at Oxford, and the applicantís undergraduate program must 
provide a sufficient basis for study in the proposed field.
All educational costs, such as matriculation, tuition, laboratory, and 
certain other fees are paid on the Scholarís behalf by the Rhodes Trustees. 
Each Scholar receives, in addition, a maintenance allowance adequate to meet 
necessary living expenses for term-time and vacations. The Rhodes Trustees 
cover the necessary costs of travel to and from Oxford.

Application deadline is MARCH 15, 2017 (end of Block 6), with on-campus 
interviews conducted the 3rd week of Block 7.

Application requirements:

∑ Current junior or senior with a GPA of 3.7 or higher.

∑ A short statement (250-300 words) explaining why you are interested in 
this scholarship and what you would do at Oxford.

∑ Copy of your transcript and a brief, one-page resume of your major 
activities and honors.
