Rhodes Scholarship Application Process
Application Process and Institutional Endorsement
All Queen's students wishing to apply for the Rhodes Scholarship must receive an institutional endorsement from the Principal. Institutional endorsements are decided through an internal screening process which takes place each year in September.
Students who meet the Rhodes criteria and are interested in applying are encouraged to make an appointment with Elizabeth (Liz) Parsons at firstname.lastname@example.org to express their interest.
All applications to be considered by Queen's internal selection committee must be submitted to the Office of the Vice-Provost and Dean of Student Affairs. You should start on your application over the summer and have your personal statement ready for review by the Queen's selection committee.
The selection committee meets mid-September 2014 to review applications. All successful students will be notified immediately. If your application has been successful, you will receive an authorization code from the university that allows you to submit your application to Rhodes. The university's endorsement letter will be sent directly by Queen's to the provincial Rhodes secretary.
