Rhodes Global Scholarship 2020 in the United Kingdom (Fully Funded)



The Rhodes Scholarship is the oldest (established 1903) international scholarship programme in the world, and one of the most prestigious. Administered by the Rhodes Trust in Oxford, the programme offers 100 fully-funded Scholarships each year for postgraduate study at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom – one of the world’s leading universities.
The Selection Committee for the Rhodes Global Scholarship is looking for outstanding young leaders
who are motivated to engage with global challenges and to promote international understanding
and peace. In short, the Selection Committee seeks young people of outstanding intellect, character,
leadership, and commitment to service, and who demonstrate a strong propensity to emerge as
‘leaders for the world’s future’.

The Rhodes Trust warmly welcomes applications from talented young people of diverse backgrounds. Selection of Rhodes Scholars is made without regard to gender, gender identity, marital status, sexual orientation, race, ethnic origin, color, religion, social background, caste, or disability
Until recently, the Rhodes Scholarships have been awarded in 20 constituencies (representing over 60 different countries). Now the Rhodes Scholarships are fully global: two new Global Scholarships allow eligible candidates from the rest of the world to apply (subject to nomination).

Benefit:

The Rhodes Scholarship 2019 is a fully funded international scholarship in the UK.
  • A Rhodes Scholarship covers all University and College fees, a personal stipend and one economy class airfare to Oxford at the start of the Scholarship, as well as an economy flight back to the student’s home country at the conclusion of the Scholarship.
  • The basic tenure of the scholarship is two years, subject always, and at all times, to satisfactory academic performance and personal conduct.

Requirement:

  • Nationality/citizenship: Eligibility to any other Rhodes Scholarship renders you ineligible to apply for a Global Scholarship, i.e. if you are eligible to apply via any existing Rhodes Constituency (https://www.rhodeshouse.ox.ac.uk/scholarships/list-of-rhodes-scholarship-countries/), you must apply there. Please also see the information below and online regarding inter-jurisdictional consideration – it may be in your interest to pursue that route rather than to apply for a Global Scholarship, which will likely be the most competitive Scholarships offered by the Rhodes Trust.
  • Age: You must have reached your 19th and not have passed your 25th birthday on 1 October 2020, which means you must have been born after 30 September 1995 and on or before 1 October 2001.
  • Academic achievement: You must have completed (or will have completed by June / July 2020) an undergraduate degree with a First Class or minimum GPA minimum of 3.70 out of 4.0 (or equivalent). Please note carefully the requirements for your chosen course at Oxford, which may be higher still. Successful candidates typically feature within the top few ranks of their graduating classes.
  • English language: You must have a sufficiently high standard of English to meet the English language proficiency requirements (at the Higher Level listed) of the University of Oxford.

How to Apply:
  • You will not be able to submit your application for the Global Scholarship without prior nomination by your University. Each university has a limited number of nominations that they can make each year. You must register the most appropriate nominator via the application form. Once their nomination has been received, you will be permitted to submit your form. You can apply online from 01 June 2019 at http://www.rhodeshouse.ox.ac.uk/scholarships/apply via the scholarships tab.
  • You must submit your application online, with all supporting documents, by 23:59 Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), 31 July 2019.
  • In preparation for making your application, you should read carefully the general information, particularly that held on the Scholarships tab, on the Rhodes website, the Conditions of Tenure for the Rhodes Scholarship, the information in this document and the graduate admissions pages of the University of Oxford: www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/graduate.
  • Longlisted candidates might be invited to attend a preliminary interview via Skype.
  • Shortlisted candidates will be invited to social engagement (reception and dinner) and a final interview. You must be available to attend both, in person, as no accommodations can be made on date and time, or mode, of these events. Interviews will be held at Rhodes House, Oxford, the UK in November. No candidate will be selected without an interview. Candidates for the Scholarship invited for the final interview and residing outside of the United Kingdom may apply to the Rhodes Global Scholarships Administrator for financial assistance to travel from their country of origin, provided that the travel could not be funded by their University or another sponsorship source.
  • All applicants will be emailed with the outcome of their application.
