AWARD: Rhodes Scholarships are tenable at the University of Oxford, and are normally held for two years. Thirty-two Scholarships are assigned annually to the United States of America. Proven intellectual and academic achievement of a high standard is the first quality required of applicants, but they will also be required to show integrity of character, interest in and respect for their fellow beings, the ability to lead, and the energy to use their talents to the full.
- An applicant must be a citizen of the United States;
- Applicant must have reached his/her eighteenth birthday but not have passed his/her twenty-fourth birthday at the time of application;
- Applicant must have received academic standing sufficiently advanced to assure completion of a Bachelor's Degree before October 1, 2013.

Simultaneous application to more than one State Committee will disqualify an applicant.
