Thirty two Rhodes Scholarships are normally awarded to U.S. students every year for graduate or advanced undergraduate study at Oxford University. Rhodes Scholarships, which are among the most prestigious academic fellowships in the world, are awarded on the basis of academic accomplishment, personal integrity and character, potential for leadership, social engagement, and physical fitness.
