Two New Global Rhodes Scholarships

The Rhodes Trust announced two new Global Rhodes Scholarships, marking a historic moment for the Trust, as candidates from anywhere in the world will be able to apply to the Scholarships for the first time in the programme’s 115 year history. The addition of these Scholarships also means that there are now over 100 Rhodes Scholarships awarded annually. The Global Scholarships will be available to candidates from any country that is not an existing Rhodes jurisdiction. Applications open in early summer 2018. Potential candidates should go to and will need to seek nomination from their university.  The selection process will conclude by the end of 2018 and the new Scholars will arrive in Oxford in October 2019.

For almost 1,000 years, Oxford University has been recognized and celebrated across the world as a jewel in the crown of world learning. Just as our past inspires us, it also demands that we achieve greater heights in the centuries to come. Inspired philanthropy has always played an important role in this University by providing resources for great scholarship, architectural jewels such the Bodleian Library and the Radcliffe Camera, or the great engineering, medical and scientific laboratories of the 20th century. By giving to Americans for Oxford, you are continuing this tradition of excellence. Thank you.
