The Rhodes Scholarships for India

A Partnership between the Rhodes Trust and the Second Century Founder, John McCall MacBain O.C.

Each year, there are five Scholarships available for India. The first Indian Rhodes Scholars took up residence in Oxford in 1947, and since that time over two hundred Indians have been awarded the Scholarship.

Rhodes Scholars in residence in Oxford have compiled an ‘Unofficial Guide’ to writing the personal statement/essay, which the Selection Committee would like to make available to all applicants. Scholars in residence have also offered to run an open group answering applicant queries so as to even the playing field for all applicants, you will find the link to that group in the document. 

Opening date: 1 June 2021
Closing date: 23:59, Indian Standard Time, 02 August 2021
