The oldest international fellowships, the Rhodes Scholarships were initiated after the death of Cecil Rhodes in 1902. Thirty-two Americans and outstanding students from around the world are elected each year to pursue two years of study at the University of Oxford. Graduating seniors and alums under the age of 24 are eligible to apply.
Rhodes Scholarships are investments in people; applications are sought from talented students without restriction as to their field of academic study or career plans, although their proposed course must be available at Oxford. Intellectual distinction is the principal quality required of applicants, but they will also be required to show integrity of character, interest in and respect for their fellow beings, the ability to lead, and the energy to use their talents to the full. Scholars are more than "mere bookworms"; it is expected that they will play an influential part in the betterment of society, wherever their careers may take them.
