After election to a Scholarship, a successful candidate has still to be found a place in the relevant department or faculty of the University as well as a place in an Oxford College.
There is no guarantee of a place and the award of a Scholarship is not confirmed by the Rhodes Trustees until a Scholarelect has been accepted by the University and a College for admission.
Election to the Scholarship is normally for two years but the Scholarship may be held for one year only, depending upon the degree programme pursued by the Scholar.
In special cases, up to three years scholarship will be given to scholars admitted to pursue a doctoral degree.
The Trustees impose no requirement that a Scholar should study in Oxford for more than one year.
A Scholarship may be renewed, at the complete discretion of the Trustees, for a third and final year for those who were initially admitted to Oxford to pursue a doctoral degree.
A Rhodes Scholar receives £9,840 sterling a year as a personal allowance in Oxford and this is adjusted annually.
The Scholar’s fees are paid by the Trust to the University and the College direct.
The Rhodes Trust will meet the cost of a Scholar’s air travel, economy class, to the United Kingdom and back to Kenya at the end of the Scholarship.
A Rhodes Scholar is expected to be a full time student, and tenure of other awards in conjunction with a Rhodes Scholarship is not permitted without prior consultation with the Chief Executive of the Rhodes Trust.
The Rhodes Trust will not pay for field research work.
Applications Close by 15th September each year.
