About us

The Rhodes Trust brings together and develops exceptional people from all over the world, and in all fields of study, who will be able to create real change in the world.

The Trust’s oldest (first awarded in 1902) and perhaps most prestigious international programme is the Rhodes Scholarships, awarded to outstanding young people from around the world to enable them to study at the University of Oxford. Several initiatives have since launched in partnership with Rhodes Trust, including The Mandela Rhodes Foundation, Schmidt Science Fellows, Atlantic Institute, and Rise. To learn more about the Trust and its partnership programmes, please visit our website.
