Rhodes Scholarships were created under the will of Cecil John Rhodes, the British colonial pioneer and statesman, who died in 1902. Rhodes hoped to provide future leaders of the English-speaking world with an education, which would broaden their views and develop their abilities. 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 Rhodes Trust, which administers the scholarships, is based in Oxford. Its Secretary, also Warden of Rhodes House, assists, guides and advises Rhodes Scholars in residence, and the Warden's office administers financial and other aspects of the scholarships. The Secretary to the Trust is also responsible for the operation of all the Selection Committees in the various constituencies, and is assisted in this in most of the larger constituencies by national secretaries. The Australian Secretary of the Trust co-ordinates the work of the Selection Committees and generally represents the Trust in Australia.
