Welcome to the information page about the Rhodes Scholarship for Bermuda.
Each year, there is one Scholarship available in Bermuda to enable an outstanding student - chosen on the basis of exceptional intellect, character, leadership, and commitment to service - to study at the University of Oxford.
The first Rhodes Scholar from Bermuda was selected to come to Oxford in 1904, and since that time nearly 100 students from Bermuda have been awarded this prestigious scholarship. They have pursued a variety of careers in public service, academia, business, law, and medicine, amongst others.
Information about Rhodes Scholars elected for Bermuda and around the world can be found in biographies of the Rhodes class of 2014 and the Rhodes class of 2013.
Applications for the Rhodes Scholarships for 2017 for Bermuda will open in June.
The selection committee will meet in Bermuda towards the end of November. The Rhodes Trust will reimburse the cost of the airfare for travel to Bermuda for shortlisted candidates, up to BD$700.
Prospective applicants from Bermuda should carefully review:
1. the general information about the Rhodes Scholarships,
2. the selection criteria that apply in all Rhodes constituencies, and then
3. the application criteria specific to Bermuda (available when applications open in June)
