Rhodes Scholarship Information Session

Dear Sophomores:

Do you have an interest in one day pursuing graduate study at Oxford University with the full financial support of a Rhodes Scholarship?  The great majority of you will become eligible to apply for this prestigious award when you become seniors, but we want you to begin thinking and planning ahead.   To learn more about the Rhodes Scholarship—what makes a good candidate, how to apply, the benefits offered to recipients—I strongly encourage you to attend a special information session that will be held from 5-6pm on Tuesday, March 7, in 202 Altschul.   We are very fortunate that three former Rhodes Scholars, including Barnard’s own Professor Jim Basker, will be on hand to discuss their experiences at Oxford and to answer your questions.

If you are unable to attend but would like to know more about the Rhodes Scholarship, please feel free to schedule an appointment with me: https://barnard.edu/dos/about/meet

I look forward to seeing you there!

Best wishes,

Dean Runsdorf
