August Rhodes/Marshall/Mitchell Endorsement Application
This Endorsement Application is the first formal step in the process of obtaining the University of Notre Dame endorsement for the Rhodes, Marshall, and/or Mitchell Scholarships, which is administered by CUSE. You will need to complete this form in one sitting, but you can use the August Endorsement Application PDF at or to prepare answers offline before entering them here. None of your answers here are final, but you will only have about a month to revise them, should you be endorsed.

After you have submitted this form, you must do the following to complete your application by the Final Endorsement Application Deadline:

(1) Submit a transcript to (electronic) or 110 Brownson Hall (hard copy). You can submit a transcript request through the Registrar's Office, or you can submit the transcript yourself. Unofficial transcripts or grade histories are acceptable at this stage. If you submit the transcript yourself to as a PDF file, please use the subject line "RMM Endorsement Transcript - [Last Name, First Name]".

(2) Ask four recommenders to submit drafts of letters of recommendation to These letters are due by the Final Endorsement Application Deadline. At least two of the letters must come from people who have taught you. At least one should be non-academic—if you are applying for the Marshall, this non-academic letter will ideally confirm and elaborate on the experience you discuss in your leadership essay. If you are endorsed for the Rhodes Scholarship, you will eventually need 5-8 letters by the end of September, at least four of which must come from people who have taught you. If you are endorsed for the Marshall or Mitchell Scholarships, you will only need 4 total letters. Your recommenders will have the opportunity to revise their letters before the end of September, should you be endorsed.

Within two weeks of the Final Endorsement Application Deadline, CUSE will contact you to let you know whether you will be moving on to the next stage of the endorsement process: an interview with the University's Rhodes/Marshall/Mitchell Endorsement Committee. More information about the interview will be provided at that time. If you have questions in the meantime, please contact
