Rhodes Scholarship

Deadline: September 30 - Annually

Please note:

All applicants must have completed their undergraduate degree to a very high standard by 1 October of the year following application. In some constituencies, you will need to have completed your degree in the year of application. Academic achievement must be sufficiently high to assure entry to the University of Oxford, whose admissions are internationally competitive, and to give confidence that Rhodes Scholars will perform to a high academic standard in Oxford. Please see the requirements listed in your country/region’s Information for Candidates for further details.

A Rhodes Scholarship is tenable at the University of Oxford and may be held for three years. Since, however, the majority of Rhodes Scholars obtain standing which enables them to take a degree in two years, appointments are made for two years in the first instance. Scholars may, however, hold the Scholarship for only 1 year.

Those Scholars who elect to read for a D.Phil. at the time of admission may apply for a third year on stipend. 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.

Procedure for receiving an endorsement letter from the president for a Rhodes Scholarship:

• The endorsement letter is drafted by a professor who knows the student.

• The letter is reviewed and approved by the Department Head. The Head forwards the complete nomination package and endorsement letter, in electronic form, to the Deans’ office. The student is ultimately responsible for ensuring that the package is complete and received on time.

• The Dean of the Faculty reviews and approves the nomination package, and forwards it to the VP (Academic).

• The VP(Academic) reviews and approves the nomination package, and forwards it to the President with her recommendation that the President provide an endorsement letter for the student.

• The President provides his letter of endorsement, and sends it to the Rhodes Scholarship Committee.

Deadline

• The deadline for Rhodes Scholarships is September 30 of each year

Advice for Student Applicants

1. It is best to send the reference letter or package electronically ( in the past there have been nomination packages sent by internal mail and therefore late for the deadline);

2. As well, either the President, Provost or Dean maybe travelling at that time in October and therefore it is prudent to have the letter/package sent earlier rather than later;

3. Keep checking on the letters because the professors are busy and not to assume that the professor has received the e-mail request or remembers being asked to write the letter;

Inquiries may be directed in writing to the Secretary of the Selection Committee to:
