Deadline: 10th April 2018

The Global Scholars Symposium (GSS) will be held this year at Rhodes House, at the University of Oxford, from May 11th-13th 2018. This year, the Symposium’s theme is “Navigating Uncertainty” in all areas of life – from politics and economic, to arts, astrophysics and mortality.

Offering an unparalleled opportunity for learning and networking, the Symposium is an opportunity for the world’s most influential and inspiring leaders to engage with promising graduate student leaders, including those studying on Gates Cambridge, Rhodes, Marshall, Fulbright, Chevening, Clarendon, Weidenfeld, and Commonwealth Scholarships. Previous speakers have included the Dalai Lama, Dr. Mo Ibrahim, and Wanjira Mathai.

The cost of attending as a delegate is £25 for Early Bird Registration (prior to March 15), and £35 for Regular Registration (after March 15). This cost includes refreshments and a light lunch for all three days of the conference.

“Affiliation with a UK Scholarship is not required for successful application”
