UBC Rhodes Scholarship Recipients

Main Library concourse 1920sRhodes Scholars from UBC, 1916-present

Documenting UBC’s participation in the international Rhodes Schlarship programme.

The Rhodes Scholarships, established in the will of Cecil Rhodes in 1902, were designed to bring outstanding students from across the world to study at Oxford University, in the interests of promoting international understanding and public service.

The scholarships require a high level of literacy and scholastic achievement, success in sports, strong qualities of leadership and character, and evidence of public service.

Across Canada, one student from every province is chosen each year. Until the establishment of Simon Fraser University and the University of Victoria in the 1960s, all British Columbia Rhodes Scholars came from UBC.
