The Rhodes Trust – the preeminent international scholarship programme established at Oxford University in 1903 – selects creative young leaders with a commitment to serving others. In the century since the establishment of the Rhodes Scholarships, the Trust has convened a community of extraordinary people who share a history of enriching their communities, pioneering in their chosen fields, and applying the knowledge and experience acquired as Scholars to the betterment of their societies.
The Rhodes Scholarships for SJLP were announced on 1 June 2016, and the related news story can be read here.
The application process opens on July 1 2016!
There will be two Rhodes Scholarships in total which will be offered to enable two outstanding students from Syria, Jordan, Lebanon or Palestine – chosen on the basis of exceptional intellect, character, leadership and commitment to service – to study at the University of Oxford beginning in October 2017.
