Rhodes Scholarship Trust
I was fortunate enough to spend two days at Oxford University working with the Rhodes Scholarship Trust.
In short, Rhodes Scholarship selection committees seek out young women and men of outstanding intellect, character, leadership, and commitment to service. The Rhodes Scholarships support students who demonstrate a strong propensity to emerge as ‘leaders for the world’s future’. – See more at:
When British businessman Cecil Rhodes died in 1902, his fortune was used to establish the Rhodes scholarship, which brings outstanding students from around the world to study at the University of Oxford in England, generally for two years. Students from any academic discipline are selected on the basis of intellectual distinction, as well as the promise of future leadership and service to the world.
Around 90 scholarships are given annually with former President Bill Clinton, famous astronomer Edwin Hubble, Grammy musician Kris Kristofferson and director Terrence Malik being past Rhodes Scholars.
It was the 110th Rhodes Scholars Meet and I was lucky enough to mix the sound for Kris Kristofferson at the evening celebrations.
