New group of Rhodes Scholars includes Ronan Farrow

The Rhodes Scholarships reward some of the best scholars in the world.

There are a group of 32 finalists this year for the Rhodes Scholarship. These winners will be able to study for 2-3 years at Oxford University in England. Wow. The most famous person who won was Ronan Farrow, Mia Farrow and Woody Allen's son.

I can't think of an serious student who would not want this scholarship. It opens up so many doors for each winner. Congratulations to all the new winners!

Cecil Rhodes wrote out some qualifications that winners of this scholarship should have. Here is the quote, from the historical biography page at the age-of-the-sage website listed below.

<The winner of the Rhodes scholarship should have: >

"'literary and scholastic attainments; his fondness of, and success in, manly outdoor sports; his qualities of manhood, truth, courage, devotion to duty, sympathy for the protection of the weak, kindliness, unselfishness and fellowship, and his exhibition during his school days of moral force of character and of instincts to lead and take an interest in his schoolmates'."

Do you think you would qualify for this scholarship? By all means, apply for next year's Rhodes Scholarships.

There were 830 applicants this year. The articles below explain more about this prestigious honor.
