Who played for the University of Queensland Football Club
Rhodes Scholarships were created under the Will of Cecil John Rhodes, the British colonial pioneer and statesman, who died in 1902. He left the greater part of his fortune to establish the scholarships, selection for which was to be based on qualities of character as well as on intellect.
Rhodes hoped to provide future leaders of the English-speaking world with an education that would broaden their views and develop their abilities, and he chose Oxford for this purpose because he believed that its residential colleges provided an environment especially conducive to personal development. Oxford was also the University he had himself attended, for short periods over a number of years while building his business and political career in Southern Africa. Rhodes hoped that those who gained these benefits from Oxford and his scholarships would go on to improve the lot of humanity, and work towards maintaining peace between nations.
The scheme was unprecedented in scale as well as vision. Rhodes' Will provided for 57 scholars each year. There were 20 'colonial' scholarships (including one for each State in Australia). A seventh annual scholarship was created for Australia in 1978, an eighth as a gift to mark the Australian Bicentenary in 1988, and a ninth in 1991.
In broad terms, the qualities expected in a scholar include scholastic and literary achievement, courage, devotion to duty and truth. They should engage in sporting activity following the belief that a healthy body creates a healthy mind, and they should have an instinct to lead. The Sports Union, in addition to nominating delegates to the selection committee, would donate a gift to their members when awarded the Scholarship.
