Supporting the Scholarships

Rhodes Scholars in Oxford

The Rhodes Scholarships reflect one of the most visionary acts of philanthropy in history. Cecil Rhodes's pioneering investment in the education of exceptional young people has nurtured successive generations of leaders whose achievements and contributions to the social good continue to change the world. With your support, we want to secure and improve the Rhodes Scholarships for the future.

The launch of The Rhodes Scholarships: Campaign for the Second Century occurred during the 110th Rhodes Anniversary. The campaign goal is to fully endow the 83 existing Scholarships in perpetuity, Due to the gifts already received, we only have a third of the overall goal left to raise, namely £50 million, and we need your help to achieve this. Your donation will also release the 'matching' element of the McCall MacBain Foundation gift, namely a 1:1 match for donations to the Canadian Scholarships and a 1:2 match for others.

Changing Lives

In the film below, Rhodes Scholars currently in Oxford discuss the impact that the Scholarship has had on their lives, and talk about their Oxford experience.

Gifts to support the Rhodes Scholarships are recognised as gifts to Oxford Thinking: The Campaign for the University of Oxford. The Rhodes Trust is keen to encourage Rhodes Scholars also to support their colleges and the wider University of Oxford.
