Rhodes Scholars Announced For 2013

WASHINGTON (November 18, 2012)--Thirty-two American students were named Sunday in the newest group of Rhodes Scholars and will be awarded scholarships to study at Oxford University.

The prestigious awards provide all expenses for as much as four years of study at the university in England.

The winners, selected from 838 applicants endorsed by 302 different colleges and universities, will enter Oxford next October.

Rhodes Scholarships were created in 1902 by the will of British philanthropist Cecil Rhodes and have a value of about $50,000 per year.

Winners are selected on the basis of high academic achievement, personal integrity, leadership potential, and physical vigor, among other attributes.

The American students will join an international group of scholars selected from 14 other jurisdictions around the world.

About 80 scholars are selected each year.
