Rhodes Scholarship Rankings By University!


For the first time Rhodes Scholarship rankings, by college, are available. A Rhodes Scholarship, only about 32 in the US per year, provides recipients with two years of study at Oxford University. It is easily considered to be the most prestigious scholarship in the world. As The Washington Post put it, "For more than a century, Rhodes scholars have left Oxford with virtually any job available to them. For much of this time, they have overwhelmingly chosen paths in scholarship, teaching, writing, medicine, scientific research, law, the military and public service. They have reached the highest levels in virtually all fields."

Here is the listing of US colleges and universities and the number of their Rhodes winners: http://www.rhodesscholar.org/stats

As you review the data please keep in mind that the 32 awards are divided into "districts" and so there are some geographic advantages that make it a bit easier for certain institutions to compete versus those in more "crowded" places; though in the end it is up to the individual to impress the Rhodes committee.
