The Rhodes Scholarships for Canada

Canadian Rhodes ScholarsThe Rhodes Scholarships for Canada – A Partnership between the Rhodes Trust and the Second Century Founder John McCall MacBain

Welcome to the information page about the Rhodes Scholarships for Canada.

Each year, there are eleven Scholarships available in Canada to enable outstanding students - chosen on the basis of exceptional intellect, character, leadership, and commitment to service - to study at the University of Oxford.

The first Canadian Rhodes Scholars took up residence in Oxford in 1904, and since that time over a thousand Canadians have been awarded this prestigious scholarship. They have pursued a variety of careers in public service, academia, business, law, and medicine, amongst others. Many have achieved notable distinction, including:

  • Allan Blakeney, Premier of Saskatchewan from 1971 to 1982
  • Justice Eileen Gillese, of the Court of Appeal for Ontario
  • David Lewis, former leader of the federal New Democratic Party, and one of its original architects
  • Roland Michener, former Governor-General of Canada, Canadian High Commissioner to India, and Speaker of the Canadian House of Commons
  • Professor David Naylor, President of the University of Toronto
  • Bob Rae, Premier of Ontario, 1990-1995
  • John Turner, former Prime Minister
  • Danny Williams, Premier of Newfoundland from 2003 to 2010.

Please enjoy video interviews with Rhodes alumni, including Canadian Rhodes Scholars Shona Brown (Ontario & New College 1987), Yaa-Hemaa Obiri-Yeboah (British Columbia & St John's 2003) and Simon Rabinovich (Quebec & Pembroke 2004). Several Canadian Scholars have been featured on this website as 'Scholar of the Week'.

Information about Rhodes Scholars elected in Canada and around the world can be found in biographies of the Rhodes class of 2014 and the Rhodes class of 2013.

Last year, Canadian Rhodes Scholars came from the following universities: University of Alberta, Dalhousie University, Harvard University, University of Manitoba, McGill University, Mount Allison University, Memorial University of Newfoundland, University of Toronto and University of Victoria.

Below is a video of the three Class of 2013 Scholars from the University of Toronto:


Applications for the Rhodes Scholarships for 2015 for Canada will open here on 1 June 2014.

There are six regional committees in Canada responsible for the selection of eleven Scholars annually across the country:

- one Scholarship in British Columbia
- three in the Prairie provinces
- two in Ontario
- two in Quebec
- two in the Maritimes, and
- one in Newfoundland.

Students from the Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut should apply in the province in which they attend university. Residents of the three territories are eligible to apply in the Prairie region if they do not attend a Canadian university.

Applicants currently studying at a Canadian university can choose to apply in either their province of residence or in the province where their university is located. In all cases, they must approach the fellowships advisor at their university and take part in the campus screening process. To proceed with a Rhodes Scholarship application, a student must first earn the endorsement of their undergraduate institution. Applications for the Scholarship are now filed online, a process which requires an authorization code available through the fellowships office at your university.
