Rhodes Scholarships India 2013    Rhodes scholarship selection committees will be seeking young women and men of outstanding intellect, character, leadership, and commitment to service.  The Rhodes scholarships support students who demonstrate strong propensity to emerge as leaders for the world’s future

Eligibility: The Scholarships are open to citizens of India. Candidates must be of such an age that they will have passed their 19th and not have passed
their 25th birthday on the October 13, 2012. Candidates must have at least a first class degree in humanities, sciences, law, engineering, agriculture or medicine from an Indian University. Candidates who are in the final year of a degree course and have exceptionally bright academic record may also apply. Candidates for medical studies should consult the Secretary, as well as the Medical School Offices at Oxford, before   submitting an application. Particular difficulties may arise for those  wishing to do research in clinical departments. Marriage is not a bar to applying for, or holding, a Rhodes scholarship. However, married candidates should bear in mind that the scholarship stipend is sufficient only for one person, and that the trust takes no financial responsibility for the support of a scholar’s spouse. Moreover, spouses who are not British citizens will find it very difficult to obtain permission to undertake paid work in England. Subject to ratification by the Rhodes Trustees, the Committee of Selection for India is responsible for deciding whether candidates comply with forgoing conditions, and for making
the nominations
