Rhodes Scholarship

Applications for the Rhodes Scholarship 2016 are due to Rhodes by midnight on Friday, 16 October, 2015, PST. Read the 2016 Rhodes Memorandum for Canada for details about the national Rhodes scholarship application.

All applicants must be endorsed by their post-secondary institution. Applicants must apply for endorsement to Queen's before they can submit their application to Rhodes. Internal Rhodes applications to Queen's University are due by 11:59 PM on Sunday, 13 September, 2015.

The application materials that candidates must submit to Queen's University to be considered for endorsement closely mirror, but are slightly different from, the application requirements for the Canadian Rhodes Scholarship.  Details about the internal Rhodes applications to Queen's University will be posted here in mid-May.

Applicants are encouraged to start their application over the summer. In the meantime, if you are a Queen's student and you are considering applying for a 2016 Rhodes Scholarship, please contact Elizabeth (Liz) Parsons in Student Academic Success Services for more information at parsonse@queensu.ca
