Impact of Your Gift

The Rhodes Trust has been very successful in delivering on this mission for over 100 years - Rhodes Scholars are pioneers in their chosen fields. They apply the knowledge and experience gained as Scholars to the betterment of the societies around them. Each year we support the development of c 100 more young people from over 60 countries. 

Funds raised will be invested into two strategic priorities that are critical to the mission:

  • Enhancing the lifelong Scholar development programme to increase the impact made by the Scholar community (this is the primary funding objective of the Scholars' Fund)
  • Funding additional Scholars from countries and regions that are playing a critical role in the world in the 21st Century and are currently under-represented in our community.

More than half of all living Scholars and many leading philanthropists and foundations have supported the Trust to date with over £250 million of new funding so far this decade. Thank you for your generosity and investment in support of our work. Your support really could change the world for the better.
