The Rhodes Scholarships for Zimbabwe
Welcome to the information page about the Rhodes Scholarships for Zimbabwe.
Each year, there are two Scholarships available in Zimbabwe to enable outstanding students - chosen on the basis of exceptional intellect, character, leadership, and commitment to service - to study at the University of Oxford.
Over many decades, Rhodes Scholars from Zimbabwe have pursued a variety of careers in public service, academia, business, law, and medicine, amongst others.
Information about Rhodes Scholars elected for Zimbabwe 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. You can also access video interviews with diverse Rhodes alumni.
Applications are now closed for the Rhodes Scholarships for 2014 for Zimbabwe.
The selection committee ordinarily meets in Harare in December.
Prospective applicants from Zimbabwe should carefully review:
1. the general information about the Rhodes Scholarships,
3. the application criteria and procedures specific to Zimbabwe (revised 22 August 2012).
There are FAQs which are applicable to all applicants.
The Secretary for the Rhodes Scholarships in Zimbabwe:

Dr Makadzange completed a DPhil in Immunology whilst at Oxford and her work now focuses on understanding immune responses to HIV infection.
