The Said Foundation is delighted to announce an exciting new scholarship partnership with the Rhodes Trust and Oxford University. Widely regarded as the most prestigious international scholarships scheme, Rhodes was established in 1902 and, to date, has supported over 7,000 students from all over the world to study at the University of Oxford. For the very first time, and with the Foundation’s support, two new Rhodes Scholars will be selected from Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine each year. The Foundation is proud to partner with Rhodes and Oxford to provide life changing opportunities for outstanding individuals from its target countries in the Middle East.
Applications for the first intake in 2017/18 must be submitted online via the Rhodes website by the deadline of 30 September 2016. For further information see Rhodes Trust website.
