History

Founded by Rhodes Scholars, including Roland Michener and E. Michael Howarth the Canadian Rhodes Scholars Foundation was founded in 1957, in recognition of the contribution of the Rhodes Scholarship on the lives and careers of its members. It is a distinct entity from the Canadian Association of Rhodes Scholars [4], with whom it shares close associations.

Although initially "the announcement of a scholarship to Canada fell somewhat short of causing an overnight sensation in Oxford" the Canadian Rhodes Scholars Foundation has grown to be a respected and prestigious institution, supported by a number of high-profile Canadian Rhodes Scholars and former recipients. There are over 80 Oxford students who have benefited from the award since its inception.

Scholarship

The Canadian Rhodes Scholars Foundation Scholarship is modelled on the Rhodes Scholarship. It provides for up to two years of full tuition and associated fees, along with an annual stipend of CDN$16,000. The Scholarship also covers airfare, and comes with a $1000 travel grant.

Short-listed candidates are invited to interview at Rhodes House, after which selection is made. The CRSF Scholarship is awarded for a maximum of two years and is eligible only to graduates of Oxford.
