About Rhodes

Rhodes Scholars are elected for two years of study at the University of Oxford, with the possibility of renewal for a third year. A Rhodes Scholarship covers all University and College fees, a personal stipend and one economy class airfare to Oxford at the start of the Scholarship, as well as an economy flight back to the student's home country at the conclusion of the Scholarship.

Applying
Canadian candidates may choose to participate in McGill's internal screening process. The McGill process is prepatory for the provincial selection process and will consist of mock interviews and relevant workshops. All applicants will be given the access code to submit their application online through the Rhodes Trust website.
