The Rhodes Scholarship

The Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford University

When Cecil John Rhodes founded his world-wide Scholarship scheme in 1902, he selected four South African schools as part of that scheme. The schools are St Andrew’s College in Grahamstown, Bishops and SACS in Cape Town and Paul Roos in Stellenbosch.

The Rhodes Scholarship generously funds study at Oxford University for two or three years. One has to be a very strong academic to be selected as a Rhodes Scholar, but the scholarship also has three other sets of criteria:

  • leadership and character
  • community involvement
  • sporting achievement

Any boy or girl who has studied at St Andrew’s College or DSG is eligible to apply for the Rhodes Scholarship after completing an undergraduate university degree.
