The Rhodes Scholarship is an amazing opportunity for up to three NZ students to pursue postgraduate study at the University of Oxford.
This opportunity is open to NZ citizens (or NZ permanent residents with at least five years domicile in NZ in the past 10 years) who have graduated or expect to graduate with an undergraduate degree this year. The scholarship is for postgraduate study for up to three years and covers personal allowance of £13,658 pa, plus fees and return airfares. You must be aged between 19 – 25 in the year of election.
This is such an incredible opportunity to have the educational experience of a lifetime – and it’s paid for! If you’re interested (of course you are) there is a Rhodes Scholarship Information Seminar on the 4th of June from 6pm in Undercroft 101. Please RSVP by the 28th of May.
For more info about the scholarship and to download an application form see the Universities New Zealand site. You must submit a hard copy of your application to the UC Scholarships Office, Student Services Centre by the 1st of August.
