Applications for the Rhodes Scholarships for 2012 are now opening. Applications for the Scholarships in most Rhodes countries have opened on 1 June, and will open in early July for the United States, Kenya, and Pakistan.
Young women and men of diverse backgrounds and interests will be selected in late 2011 to enter the University of Oxford in October 2012 as postgraduate students from 14 countries or regions around the world.
The Rhodes class of 2012 will comprise 83 Scholars chosen for this remarkable life-changing opportunity on the basis of exceptional intellect, character, leadership, and commitment to service.
The Rhodes Scholarship is the oldest, and is widely considered the most prestigious, international scholarship program in the world. Since 1903, over 7000 Rhodes Scholars have studied in Oxford, and gone on to careers of distinction and impact, including as leaders in government, education, business, law, medicine, media, international and not-for-profit organisations, community activities, and much else.
