Post-graduate Scholarships & Fellowships


More than 90% of Rhodes students are employed or attending graduate or professional school with a year of graduating.

What are you doing after graduation? How are you going to pay for that next step?

Could you use a scholarship to offset the cost of that prestigious advanced degree? Would you like to spend a year after graduation doing research in inorganic chemistry in Germany? How about studying race relations in Brazil?

These are just a few examples of the types of fully funded postgraduate studies undertaken by Rhodes graduates over the years. You could be eligible for postgraduate scholarship opportunities as well. Recipients of these prestigious awards have achieved recognition of life-long significance.

The faculty Postgraduate Scholarship Committee coordinates the endorsement and application process at Rhodes for nationally prestigious scholarships. The Committee informs students about scholarship opportunities and helps with the applications process.
