The Rhodes Scholarship, one of the most prestigious awards, funds two or three years of post-bachelor study at Oxford University in Great Britain. The award covers educational and living expenses. Initiated after the death of Cecil Rhodes in 1902, the scholarships bring outstanding students from nineteen countries and five continents to Oxford University. Rhodes Scholars may pursue either a second bachelor’s degree or a higher degree. Selectors look for outstanding intellectual and academic achievement (typically a minimum 3.6 GPA). Applicants must also show integrity of character, interest in and concern for others, leadership ability, and the energy to fully use their talents.
