The Rhodes Scholarships, established in 1902, were designed to bring outstanding students from across the world to study at Oxford University in the interests of promoting international understanding and public service. Eleven Canadians are selected each year to join a class of 84 Scholars from across the world.
The Scholarships cover all approved fees for a second bachelor’s degree or a graduate degree in addition to a stipend for living expenses for two years.
