Are YOU Tulane’s Next Rhodes Scholar?

Rhodes Scholarship Information Session

Wednesday, April 20th, at 9:00 AM CDT

Every year, the Rhodes Trust brings together 100 new Rhodes Scholars from around the world. The scholarship fully funds postgraduate study at the University of Oxford, and is a life-changing opportunity for exceptional young people who will change the world for the better.

Join NTC’s Office of Fellowship Advising (OFA) for a virtual visit from Beth Pearson, Assistant American Secretary for the Rhodes Trust, with the participation of Noam Schreiber, Chicago-based reporter for The New York Times, former Rhodes Scholar, and Tulane graduate (class of 1998) at 9AM CDT on Wednesday, April 20th. During this session, you will learn what it’s like to be a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford and what makes a competitive applicant for this program.
