The Rhodes Scholarships to Oxford, the Marshall Scholarships to the United Kingdom, and the Schwarzman Scholars program to China are especially prestigious, therefore especially competitive awards.  Both the Rhodes Scholarships and the Marshall Scholarships require a significant letter of endorsement by Loyola University Chicago among its application materials.  While the Scwarzman Scholars program requires only an Institutional Assessment form, as opposed to an endorsement, nonetheless we include the Schwarzman Scholars program here given its very high level of prestige and competition.

Students who are interested in applying for one of these awards must understand that it is a complex, sometimes time-consuming process.  As the Fellowship Office must coordinate the campus process for endorsement, we have established the following internal requirements for each award.

Schwarzman Scholars: interested students must submit the following no later than July 1 in the year they wish to apply:

-- a polished draft of the leadership essay required by the Schwarzman application.  Please read their instructions carefully on what this essay needs to contain and word limit.

-- a list of at least three people who can provide you letters of reference, including one person who will be able to confirm your leadership ability

-- which of the three academic tracks you wish to follow.

-- written confirmation you have read and agree to comply with the FO Ethics Statement.

 

Rhodes Scholarships: interested students must submit the following no later than July 1 in the year they wish to apply:

-- a narrative of no more than 500 words detailing the Oxford degree program in which you wish to enroll, including why that degree program and its resources are the best for your career goals.  

-- a list of at least five and no more than eight people who can provide you with letters of reference.

-- written confirmation you have read and agree to comply with the FO Ethics Statement.


Marshall Scholarships: interested students must submit the following no later than July 1 in the year they wish to apply:

-- a narrative of no more than 750 words detailing the UK institution and degree program you wish to attend, why you to attend that program, and addressing the Marshall Scholarship's published selection criteria of "knowledge of US/UK Relations."  You may address any other Marshall selection criteria as well.

-- written confirmation you have read and agree to comply with the FO Ethics Statement.
