Seminar to offer tips on application for Rhodes Scholarship

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

Dean of students Clayton Smith will conduct the seminar on Wednesday, March 26, offering information about the prestigious scholarship—what it offers, what the application criteria are, who is eligible, and how to apply. Professor Simon du Toit will present resources on preparing to apply for an external award 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 5 p.m. in room 203, Toldo Health Education Centre. To confirm your participation, RSVP to Dr. du Toit at
