The Rhodes Trust Scholarship – Bursaries
This Scholarship fund awards bursaries to postgraduate students and covers all University fees, a personal fee as well as an economy airfare to Oxford at the beginning of the study term and again back to South Africa after the completion of the studies. The Rhodes Trust Fund was established in 1903 and is most likely the oldest International Graduate Fund in addition to probably also being the most prestigious. This Scholarship was established to aid in the development of spectacular leaders which would fight for all in the world and make public duty their aim in life.
Candidates will be selected on their literacy ability, academic achievements but also their truthfulness, courage, sympathy, kindness, unselfishness, fellowship towards others in addition to their devotion to duty and protection of the weak. They need to be born leaders with a keen instinct and interest in their surroundings.
