About Rhodes Trust:
The Rhodes Trust, established in 1902 under the will of Cecil Rhodes, and by subsequent Acts of Parliament, is a renowned educational charity whose principal activity is to support top scholars to study at the University of Oxford. The Rhodes Trust brings together and develops exceptional people from all over the world and in all fields of study. Among the past Rhodes Scholars, there have been over 40 world leaders with global influence and over 10 Nobel Laureates. Because of its extremely low acceptance rate, it is widely considered to be one of the world's most prestigious scholarships.
