As the Rhodes Scholarships are place-based, the eligibility criteria, application requirements and selection process vary slightly depending on which constituency you are applying for. To ensure that you have all of the information you need to apply, please read the Information for Candidates carefully. You should also check the Conditions of Tenure to ensure that your proposed course of study is covered by the Rhodes Scholarship and share the Guidance for Referees with your referees. These documents can all be accessed below.

We understand that some applicants in the constituency are currently facing extraordinary circumstances and encourage you to contact the National Secretary if this has affected your ability to apply to the Scholarship. We will consider all applications on a case-by-case basis.
