Scholarship Description: Academic excellence is the first and indispensable quality required of all applicants, but the Founder expressly desired that his Scholars should not be mere ‘bookworms’. It is important however, that Rhodes Scholars should have the high academic competence necessary for them to be able to cope with the demands of academic life at Oxford University, while still being able to take advantage of the opportunity to experience all that Oxford has to offer.
