The most prestigious scholarship a student can win is, hands down, the Rhodes Scholarship. While the free education at Oxford University can't be beat, the esteem of being awarded a Rhodes Scholarship is unparalleled: Rhodes scholars are considered the cream of the crop and can get jobs in any career of their choice, according to Elliot F. Gerson, the American Secretary of the Rhodes Trust.

That statement may sound self-serving, but then again, Gerson is stating the obvious. Just take a look at the list of former Rhodes Scholars: Broadcaster Rachel Maddow, author Naomi Wolf, George Stephanopoulos, Michael Kinsley, and of course, Bill Clinton.
