About the Canadian Rhodes Scholars Foundation
The Foundation awards the Oxford-Canada Scholarship, which offers graduates of Oxford University an opportunity to further their studies at a Canadian university of their choice.
One or two Oxford-Canada Scholarships are awarded, annually. They fund full-time, postgraduate study, renewable for a second year, and are open to all disciplines; there are no restrictions on the course of study.
The CRSF was founded by Canadian Rhodes Scholars including Roland Michener, a Governor General of Canada (Alberta, Hertford College, 1919).
