Do you know a future Rhodes Scholar?

First published 18 April 2019

Each year, one Queensland Rhodes Scholar is chosen to undertake postgraduate study at Oxford University. Most people find out about the Rhodes Scholarship because someone suggests they should think about applying for it. Is there someone you know who could be a candidate?

There are nine Rhodes Scholars each year from across Australia. They join a community of nearly 8000 Rhodes Scholars worldwide and are part of a tradition in Australia that dates back to 1903.

Applicants have be very strong academically but a commitment to community service, leadership, and extracurricular activities are also important qualities of future Rhodes Scholars.

This year, applications open on 1 July and close on 13 September 2019. Visit the website for further information.
