Scholarships to Israel individuals who have completed their undergraduate degree to attend a prestigious UK university. This program is intended for young scholars demonstrating outstanding leadership, character, intellect, a commitment to service, and the potential for leadership.
The Rhodes Scholarship program is the oldest (established 1903), and perhaps the most prestigious, international scholarship program in the world. Administered by the Rhodes Trust in Oxford, the program offers more than 100 fully-funded Scholarships each year for postgraduate study at the University of Oxford in the UK - one of the world’s leading universities. Selection Committees for the Scholarships are looking for young leaders of outstanding intellect and character who are motivated to engage with global challenges, committed to the service of others, and show promise of becoming value-driven, principled leaders for the world’s future.
The broad selection criteria are:
- Academic excellence
- Energy to use your talents to the full (as demonstrated by mastery in areas such as sports, music, debate, dance, theatre, and artistic pursuits, including where teamwork is involved)
- Truth, courage, devotion to duty, sympathy for and protection of the weak, kindliness, unselfishness, and fellowship
- Moral force of character and instincts to lead, and to take an interest in your fellow human beings
A Rhodes Scholar will undertake postgraduate study at Oxford, a taught or research degree, or a second undergraduate degree with senior status (over two years). Subject to fulfilling the entry criteria for their chosen course, Rhodes Scholars may pursue any full-time postgraduate course offered by the University of Oxford, whether or not in their field of expertise. In all cases, entry to Oxford is very competitive indeed.

The Rhodes Scholarship is for two years in the first instance. The Rhodes Scholarship covers Oxford University (and College) fees as well as providing an annual stipend. The detailed Conditions of Tenure document outlines permitted combinations of degrees, and how many years of study are covered by the Scholarship, as the latter depends on course choice - for example, up to three years of fees and stipend is available to Scholars who choose to undertake a DPhil (PhD) at Oxford. The Rhodes Scholarship is for not less than two years
In addition to the above, the Rhodes Trust will cover two economy class flights - to and from the UK - for the beginning and end of studies in Oxford. Scholars receive a settling in allowance on arrival. The International Health Surcharge, which enables international students to access the UK's National Health Service, is covered for the duration of a Scholar's tenure. Following selection for the Scholarship, the Rhodes Trust will also cover the application fee required to apply to study at the University of Oxford.
Under no circumstances does the Rhodes Trust pay stipend (living expenses) beyond the third year of Scholarship.
