These are among the best known and most prestigious scholarships in the world. Established by Cecil Rhodes in his will in 1902, the scholarships (of which 32 are awarded to American men and women each year) are for two or three years of study at Oxford University in any field. Tuition and fees are paid, plus a stipend for living expenses and travel. Applicants must be goal-oriented, have leadership ability, high scholastic achievement, a strong character, and physical vigor. Eckerd College has had a Rhodes Scholar and multiple national and regional finalists, and their advice and essays are available to prospective applicants. Those interested should also contact Dr. Richard Hallin, our former Dean of Admissions, who was a Rhodes Scholarship winner.
