The Rhodes Scholarship recognizes students who are physically, intellectually and morally capable of leadership by providing full support for two years of study at Oxford University. Rhodes Scholars are selected from across the disciplines, and are able to select any course of study offered by Oxford.
Eligibility: Seniors and recent graduates under the age of twenty-four at the time of application are eligible.
Selection Process: The application consists of a personal essay, a resume-like listing of activities and achievements, a transcript, and up to eight letters of recommendation. Applicants are nominated by the college and submit written materials to the state committee. Interviews are held in each state, with finalists competing in regional interviews. Thirty-two Rhodes Scholars are selected from the US each year.
Deadline: Wednesday, October 3
