About the Rhodes Scholarship

The Rhodes Scholarships are considered the oldest and most prestigious international scholarships for outstanding scholars from any academic field of study. Funded by the estate of Cecil J. Rhodes (the Rhodes Trusts), the Rhodes Scholarships support students who demonstrate a strong propensity to emerge as 'leaders for the world's future'.

Rhodes Scholarships are tenable for postgraduate studies or a second bachelor's degree at Oxford University, for two years with the possible extension of a third year.

Distribution of Rhodes Scholarships within Canada

Eleven Canadian Rhodes Scholars are chosen each year from among those nominated by Canadian Universities from across the country, including two scholarships in Ontario.
