Seminar to outline application process for Rhodes scholarships

Are you active in the community as a volunteer or community leader? Are you on the Dean’s list? A seminar Monday night will invite accomplished students to consider a significant opportunity: the Rhodes Scholarship at Oxford University.

Dean of Students Clayton Smith and Simon du Toit, coordinator of the Outstanding Scholars program, will conduct the seminar Monday, March 14, offering information about the scholarship—what it offers, what the application criteria are, who is eligible, and how to apply. Dr. du Toit will also present resources on preparing to apply for significant external awards such as the Rhodes.

“Your hard work deserves recognition, and we aim to help you achieve that recognition,” says Dr. Smith.

He expects the event to last just over an hour. It begins at 7 p.m. in room 203, Toldo Health Education Centre. To confirm your participation, RSVP to du Toit at
