(7) The Rhodes Scholarships for Jamaica and the Commonwealth Caribbean:

These scholarships were established by Mr. Cecil John Rhodes, a British diamond magnate and imperial statesman. In his Will, Mr. Rhodes left the greater part of his substantial fortune to establish The Rhodes Trust. Candidates for Rhodes Scholarships were to be selected on the basis of qualities of character as well as of intellect. Mr. Rhodes’ aim was to provide future leaders of the English-speaking world with an education that would broaden their views and develop their abilities. He chose to endow these scholarships at Oxford University, because he believed that its residential colleges provided an environment especially conducive to personal development. His Will also allowed for the Trustees, at their unfettered discretion, to send Scholars to other universities with a residential system. Altogether over 7,000 Rhodes Scholarships have been awarded since the 1900s. Each year, there is One Jamaica Rhodes Scholarship, available to candidates from Jamaica only, and One Commonwealth Caribbean Rhodes Scholarship, available to candidates from the Commonwealth Caribbean generally, including Jamaicans (at the Rhodes Trust’s discretion).
