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 (two in Ontario).

Information about Rhodes Scholars elected in Canada and around the world can be found in biographies of the Rhodes class of 2013, the Rhodes class of 2012 and the Rhodes class of 2011    

Value of the Scholarship

As fees vary according to the subject and degree taken, as well as the residential college attended, it is impossible to state ahead of time the exact value of the scholarship.

The Rhodes Scholarship includes tuition, college fees, and a stipend covering living expenses for two and possibly three years study at the University of Oxford. The Scholarship also include private health insurance (offered through BUPA) and one economy class airfare to Oxford at the start of the scholarship and one economy flight back to the student’s home country at the conclusion of the scholarship.
