Rhodes Scholarships for India citizen to study at University of Oxford


Application for The Rhodes Scholarships for India citizen to study at University of Oxford is now available online.

Each year, there are five Scholarships available for India to enable outstanding students - chosen on the basis of exceptional intellect, character, leadership, and commitment to service - to study at the University of Oxford. The first Indian Rhodes Scholars took up residence in Oxford in 1947, and since that time over two hundred Indians have been awarded this prestigious Scholarship.

Fields of study: 
Rhodes Scholarships supports many academic courses at Oxford University. Applicants should review the Oxford’s postgraduate degree courses to determine the degree for which they would apply.
