Rhodes Scholarship 2012
The scholarship covers approved university and college fee. It also covers living expenses for term-time and vacations. The Rhodes Trust will also meet the cost of a scholar’s air travel, economy class, to the UK, and of return to India on completion of studies at Oxford.

Eligibility: The scholarships are open to Indian citizens. 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 an 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.

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. 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. Qualities of intellect, character and leadership are what the committee will look for in a candidate. A Rhodes Scholar should not be one-sided or selfish
