120th Anniversary Reunion

When different people come together in a shared spirit, exciting new things begin. 2023 marks 120 years of bringing people together through the Rhodes Scholarships, 20 years of The Mandela Rhodes Foundation and five years of the Schmidt Science Fellows programme. We are so excited to invite Scholars to Oxford to celebrate these tremendous milestones.

2023 is a big year for the Rhodes Trust, marking the 120th anniversary of the Rhodes Scholarships, the 20th of The Mandela Rhodes Foundation, and the 5th of the Schmidt Science Fellows programme.

We are delighted to be welcoming all Rhodes Scholars back to the newly renovated Rhodes House for three days from 29 June to 1 July 2023, for a festival of reunions and events to mark our 120th anniversary. There will be lots to see and do at Rhodes House and beyond in Oxford.

We can’t wait to see you in 2023.
