    Rhodes Scholarships for China

    The inaugural class of Chinese Rhodes Scholars joined Oxford University in 2016. As of 2020, there are twenty Rhodes Scholars from China. They are “fighting the world’s fight.” Join them. The Rhodes Scholarship programme is the oldest (established 1903) international scholarship programme in the world, and one of the most prestigious. Administered by the Rhodes Trust in Oxford, the programme offers 102 fully-funded Scholarships each year for postgraduate study at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom – one of the world’s leading universities. Rhodes Scholarships are for young leaders of outstanding intellect and character who are motivated to engage with global challenges, committed to the service of others and show promise of becoming value-driven, principled leaders for the world’s future.

    This information session is geared towards eligible candidates for the Rhodes Scholarships for China (Citizens of the People’s Republic of China with a GPA 3.75 or higher). Full eligibility criteria here. Interested applicants to Rhodes Scholarships from other universities and for other constituencies are also welcome to attend.

    Please email questions in advance to ai.asianstudies@utoronto.ca.
