Scholarships to Israel individuals who have completed their undergraduate degree to attend a prestigious UK university. The scholarships are intended to help with the pursuit of a postgraduate course of study, research or a taught degree, or a second undergraduate degree. This program aims to help young scholars who demonstrate exceptional character, intellect, commitment to service, and leadership qualities to study at the University of Oxford.

The Rhodes Scholarship, established in 1903, is the oldest international scholarship program in the world, and one of the most prestigious. Administered by the Rhodes Trust in Oxford, the program offers 100 fully-funded Scholarships each year for postgraduate study at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom - one of the world’s leading universities. Rhodes Scholarships are 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 one's talents to the full (as demonstrated by mastery in areas such as sports, music, debate, dance, theater, 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 one's 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).

Estimated Size of Grant:

The Rhodes Scholarship covers Oxford University course fees and provides an annual stipend. For the 2021/22 academic year, the stipend is £17,310 per annum (£1,442.50 per month) from which Scholars pay all living expenses, including accommodation. Please note - this is not sufficient to cover partners or dependents.

Term of Contract:

Scholars come into residence in Oxford in late September of the year following their selection. This means Scholars who are successfully elected in 2022, will commence their studies at Oxford in October 2023.
