The Rhodes Scholar must present a definite plan of study for that period satisfactory to his/her College and to the Rhodes Trustees. A Rhodes Scholar may apply to any one of the courses of study available at the University of Oxford, subject to the consent of the college or, in the case of graduate study, the relevant faculty or department.

The stipend of a Rhodes Scholarship consists of a direct payment to the University and to the Scholar's College of approved fees (such as matriculation, tuition, laboratory fees, and certain other set charges), plus a maintenance allowance, which is paid directly to the Scholar at the rate of at least ?3,480 per annum to cover board, lodging and other expenses. The sum provided should be sufficient to enable a Scholar to meet the necessary expenses for term-time and vacations, but those who can afford to supplement it to a modest extent from their own resources are advised to do so. Reasonable travel expenses to and from Oxford will be paid by the Trust. Application forms containing full particulars can be obtained from the Secretary of the Selection Committee for the Province of Newfoundland or from the Scholarships and Awards Office at Memorial University of Newfoundland.
