The Rhodes Scholarships

Rhodes Scholarships


Support one or more years of postgraduate degree study at Oxford.

Details and advice

While Yale's endorsement (and therefore campus application) is not required for Rhodes applicants from countries other than Canada and the US, the Fellowships office will gladly advise ANY Yale applicants for the Rhodes, and may be able to help put you in touch with previous Yale Rhodes applicants from your country.

Citizens of the United States, British Commonwealth countries, and the Federal Republic of Germany apply for Rhodes Scholarships under the auspices of Rhodes Committees in their own countries. The United States, with an annual authorization of 32 Rhodes Scholars, provides the largest of the national delegations, but the American contingent forms only a minority of the total. In a typical term, some 230 Rhodes Scholars are in residence at Oxford from the following countries: Australia, Bermuda, Canada (11 scholars named each year), Germany, Hong Kong, India, Jamaica and Commonwealth Caribbean, Kenya, New Zealand, Pakistan, Southern Africa (including South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, and Swaziland), Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

For further information, and particulars concerning national applications, deadlines, and contacts, see the Rhodes Trust website and schedule an appointment with a Fellowships adviser.
