(Any field of study)
Extraordinary intellectual distinction is a necessary but not a sufficient condition for election to a Rhodes Scholarship. Selection committees seek excellence in qualities of mind and in qualities of person; the Rhodes Scholarships are investments in individuals rather than in project proposals. Accordingly, applications are sought from talented students without restriction as to their field of academic specialization or career plans although the proposed course of study must be available at Oxford, and the applicant’s undergraduate program must provide a sufficient basis for study in the proposed field.
Applicants must be endorsed by an institution where they will have completed two years of full-time undergraduate study and received a bachelor’s degree. There will be a competitive selection process to select CU’s candidates. All applications are completed online, including a short essay. The applicant must attest that s/he has received no help in writing the personal statement. This application requires five to eight letters of recommendation. See the Preliminary Requirement for applying to the Rhodes Scholarship.
