Rhodes Global Scholarships 2025

There are two Rhodes Scholarships available each year for Global. The Global Scholarships allow eligible candidates from the rest of the world (i.e. not connected to any other Rhodes Scholarships Constituency) to apply for a Scholarship, subject to nomination.

Program Details

You can request and receive a nomination through the application form itself – you will not be able to submit an application for a Global Rhodes Scholarship unless a nomination from your institution has been received.

Your eligibility for the Global Scholarship must also be confirmed by a member of the Rhodes House team. This will be done through the application form but you will only be able to submit once you have received approval.


• Nationality/citizenship: You may only apply to the Global Scholarships if you are not eligible to apply via any existing Rhodes constituency. If you have a strong connection to one or more Rhodes constituencies but do not meet their eligibility criteria, you should also consider inter-jurisdictional consideration rather than the Global Scholarship.

• Age: You must meet either of the below criteria: i. You must be aged 18-23 on 1st October 2024 (i.e. you must have been born after 1 October 2000 and before 2 October 2006). OR (for older candidates who completed their first undergraduate degree later than usual)

ii. You must be under the age of 27 on 1st October 2024 (i.e. have been born after 1 October 1997) AND you must also have completed your first undergraduate degree on or after 1 October 2023*.

* A university’s policy determines the date of completion of academic requirements for a degree, and this may be different from when a degree is considered awarded by the university or the date of a graduation ceremony. In ambiguous cases, the decision of the National Secretary is final. •

Scholarship Worth

  • The Rhodes Scholarship covers Oxford University course fees, as well as providing an annual stipend. For the 2023/24 academic year, the stipend is £19,092 per annum (£1,591 per month), from which Scholars pay all living expenses, including accommodation. Please note – this is not sufficient to cover partners or dependents.
  • Following selection for the Scholarship, the Rhodes Trust will cover the fee required to apply to study at the University of Oxford. The Trust will cover the fee for a student visa and the associated International Health Surcharge (IHS), which enables international students to access the UK’s National Health Service. The Rhodes Trust will cover two economy class flights – to and from the UK – for the beginning and end of studies in Oxford.
  • On arrival in Oxford, Scholars receive a settling-in allowance, and for those Scholars who transition to a second course of study in Oxford, they will again receive assistance to cover the fee for visa renewal and further application for IHS.

Academic achievement:

You must have completed an undergraduate degree (usually a Bachelor’s) by July 2025, and you must have an academic background and grade that – at a minimum – meets or exceeds the specific entry requirements of your chosen course at the University of Oxford.

Candidates will have a higher chance of successful admission to Oxford if they have:

o A First Class Honours Degree or equivalent, or, o A GPA of 3.70/4.0 or higher* *Once you have noted the entry requirements for your chosen course(s), you can check international grade equivalencies here. • English Language: You must meet the University of Oxford’s English language requirements. This means that unless you qualify for a test waiver, you must provide English test results with scores that meet the University’s higher-level requirement.
