Sailing Weekend 

Rhodes Scholarship in Canada & CARS are pleased to host the Sailing Dinner and Alumni Conference in Toronto on Friday, September 27 to Sunday, September 29, 2019 to help reunite fellow Scholars and delve into key topics of the day during our Saturday conference.

Join us in celebration of our 2019 Scholars as we send them off on their journey to Oxford. The weekend will feature an opening reception with remarks by Warden Dr. Elizabeth Kiss, a full day of sessions exploring how Scholars are working in innovative ways in the fields of healthcare, technology, social impact and more, and ending with the annual Sailing Dinner. On Sunday, we encourage Scholars to connect with fellow classmates to explore the many cultural and sporting activities in Toronto. We hope to see you there!

If you are not able to join us, please consider making a donation to support a recent Scholar to attend the weekend here.

We look forward to connecting alumni together and welcoming the Scholars-elect into our Rhodes community.
