Rhodes Scholars are appointed for two years of study at the University of Oxford, with the possibility of renewal for a third year. All educational costs, such as matriculation, tuition, laboratory and certain other fees, are paid on the Scholar's behalf by the Rhodes Trustees. In addition, each Scholar receives 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. Rhodes Scholars will be judged by four standards, including literary and scholastic attainments; energy to use one's talents to the full, as exemplified by fondness for and success in sports; truth, courage, devotion to duty, sympathy for and protection of the weak, kindliness, unselfishness and fellowship; and moral force of character and instincts to lead and to take an interest in one's fellow beings. The campus deadline is in early April. Please complete a Merit Awards Profile if you are interested in this scholarship. A university nomination, in addition to close interaction with the Office of Merit Awards during the Rhodes application process, is required to apply for this scholarship.
