Extraordinary intellectual distinction is a necessary but not a sufficient condition for election to a Rhodes Scholarship. Selection committees are charged to seek excellence in qualities of mind and in qualities of person, which in combination, offer the promise of effective service to the world in the decades ahead.
Eligible students are rising Duke Seniors and all others up to the age of 24-26 depending on the jurisdiction. Applications are welcomed from all nationalities and are not restricted to U.S. citizens.
The application requires Duke University endorsement and so deadlines are in advance of the deadlines posted by the Rhodes scholarship. For more information, visit the Office of University Scholars and Fellows.
