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).


The Foundation is governed by a board of directors.


The Canadian Rhodes Scholars Foundation (CRSF) is funded by senior Canadian Rhodes Scholars, former Oxford-Canada Scholars and others.
