The Rhodes Scholarship For Malaysia

  • Listed: August 17, 2017 4:22 pm


The Rhodes Scholarship is administered by the Rhodes Trust, Oxford, United Kingdom. Scholarships are awarded in 20 Rhodes constituencies (47 different countries) around the world. Selection Committees for the Rhodes Scholarship are looking for outstanding leaders who are motivated to engage with global challenges, to ‘esteem the performance of public duties as their highest aim’, and to promote international understanding and peace. In short, Selection Committees seek young women and men of outstanding intellect, character, leadership, and commitment to service, and who demonstrate a strong propensity to emerge as ‘leaders for the world’s future’.

    • A copy of a valid passport (with translation, if necessary), confirming that you meet the citizenship criteria.
    • An official transcript from the university at which you are studying, or have studied, showing grades achieved.
    • Evidence that you have been resident, and have attended schooling, in Malaysia for five of the last ten years, eg
      school records.
    • A full curriculum vitae which should include details about prizes, scholarships, positions of leadership,
      involvement in student, voluntary, community or political activities and any cultural, musical or sporting
      accomplishments. This should not exceed two A4 (12pt) pages in length.

      Alternatively, if you have studied at an English-language university, you may apply for a waiver from this
      language-test requirement. In your letter for waiver request, you must demonstrate that by the time your studies
      at Oxford commence, you will have completed a full-time course of at least nine months, undertaken at a
      recognised institution where the medium of instruction and assessment throughout the course is entirely in

        home country and the region;
      • Indicates the course of study and degree you wish to follow at Oxford.

    It is very important for you to have considered what course and degree you wish to follow at Oxford before you submit your application. It is a good idea to discuss your proposed course of study with your professors or lecturers in that field, and, if possible, with someone who has knowledge of United Kingdom universities. Additional sources of information are available online at www.ox.ac.uk/admissions, as well as on individual faculty/departmental websites.
