Election to the Scholarship is normally for two years but the Scholarship may be held for one year only, depending upon the degree programme pursued by the Scholar. The Trustees impose no requirement that a Scholar should study in Oxford for more than one year. A Scholarship may be renewed, at the complete discretion of the Trustees, for a third and final year for those who were initially admitted to Oxford to pursue a doctoral degree.

The Rhodes Trust will pay all university and college fees, exclusive of board and lodging, direct to the College concerned. A Rhodes Scholar receives a personal allowance, currently £11,500 sterling per year, in Oxford from which he/she pays board and lodging and other maintenance costs 1 . The Rhodes Trust will meet the cost of a Scholar’s air travel, economy class, to the United Kingdom at the start of the Scholarship and back to Hong Kong at the end of the Scholarship.
