WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE SPONSOR RHODES TRUST:
The Rhodes scholarship is one of the very good products of the will of a certain Cecil Rhodes (1853-1902) and this scholarship is managed by the Rhodes Trust.It is a global organisation that uses her deep connections across the world to bring together people of different backgrounds and viewpoints. We encourage them to openly debate, challenge each other’s thinking and generate new ideas.
Cecil Rhodes expected his Trustees to adapt his plans to respond effectively to changing circumstances. Soon after his death his Trustees created several more Scholarships for Canada than he had done. The adaptation continued through three Acts of the British Parliament and other important changes to his will – for example, during World War I, abolishing the German Scholarships, which were twice re-created by his Trustees (in 1929-30 and 1969-70); in 1929, wholly remaking the geographic basis on which the Scholarships are awarded in the United States; opening up all but four of the Scholarships to women as well as to men in 1976; the opening up of those four remaining Scholarships (for named schools in South Africa) to women in recent years. During the first 100 years after Cecil Rhodes’s death, the Trustees added at one time or another nearly another 40 Scholarships, though not all have continued.For more about Rhodes trust scholarship, see this official link
