The Rhodes Scholarships brings outstanding students from many countries around the world to the University of Oxford. U.S. Rhodes Scholars are selected through a decentralized process by which regional selection committees choose 32 Scholars each year. Rhodes Scholars are chosen not only for their outstanding scholarly achievements, but for their character, commitment to others and to the common good, and for their potential for leadership in whatever domains their careers may lead
