Rhodes Scholarship Eligibility

The following eligibility criteria apply to all applicants for the Rhodes Scholarships:

Citizenship & Residency

Each applicant must fulfil the citizenship and residency requirements of the Rhodes constituency for which they are applying. Please check the detailed information carefully via the country links.


By 1 October of the year following selection, age limits vary by constituency and range from 18 to 28. The age limit in most constituencies is 24 or 25. Before applying, please double-check your constituency’s exact age restrictions. Following the selection process, successful candidates will arrive in Oxford in October. Normally, the Scholarship cannot be postponed.


All applicants must have achieved academic standing sufficiently advanced to assure completion of a bachelor’s degree by October following the election. Academic standing must be sufficiently high to ensure admission to the University of Oxford, which has very competitive entry requirements and to give confidence that Rhodes Scholars will perform to a high academic standard in Oxford.

Individual constituencies may specify a 1st or equivalent. Some constituencies require an undergraduate degree to have been taken within the constituency of application.

Application Instructions

All Scholarship candidates should read the information about the Scholarships on the country-specific website to learn about the application criteria, eligibility restrictions, and deadlines that apply to their country.

Rhodes Scholarship applications open in the spring and summer of the preceding year, usually on the 1st of June or 1st of July. The deadline varies by nation, but it usually falls between July and October of the year before you want to study.
