Each year, 32 American Rhodes Scholars are selected. Rhodes Scholars are elected for two years of graduate study at Oxford, with a possible renewal for a third year for Ph.D. students.

Rhodes, proven intellectual and academic achievement of a high standard (GPA of 3.8 or above), ability to show integrity of character, interest in and respect for their fellow beings, the ability to lead, and the energy to use their talents to the full, as exemplified by fondness for and success in sports. Rhodes Scholars are chosen with the expectation that they will make an effective contribution to the world around them.

 

All educational costs, such as matriculation, tuition, laboratory and certain other fees, are paid on the Scholar's behalf by the Rhodes Trustees. Each Scholar receives in addition a maintenance allowance adequate to meet necessary expenses for term-time and vacations. The Rhodes Trustees cover the necessary costs of travel to and from Oxford, and upon application, may approve additional grants for research purposes or study-related travel. The Rhodes requires an internal application process; please contact the Office of Academic Scholarships if you are interested in applying for this award.
