An exceptional number of students from the King’s have become Rhodes Scholars. In light of this auspicious history, King’s encourages its most academically talented and well-rounded final-year students and recent graduates to consider the possibilities afforded by the Rhodes Scholarship (Oxford), as well as the newer McCall MacBain Scholarship (McGill).

To compete for a Rhodes Scholarship in the Eastern Canada competition, eligible students/recent alumni must be between 18-23 years old on October 1, 2023 and must be recommended by the President of King’s College.

If you are interested in applying for a Rhodes Scholarship or McCall MacBain Scholarship, please join us for a virtual information session on August 23, 2023, outlining the application process. This session will be led by President William Lahey and Julia Lo, Director of Marketing and Communication for McCall MacBain Scholarships.

To attend the information session:

  1. Check your university email inbox for the Zoom link. Eligible students were sent the link on August 14, 2023
  2. RSVP by emailing
