The Rhodes Scholarships are funded by the Rhodes Trust, which was set up in 1903 according to the wishes of Cecil John Rhodes (7.5.1853 – 3.26.1902). Only 83 scholarships are awarded each year to students who will, in Cecil’s own words, fight “the world's fight” and “esteem the performance of public duties as their highest aim.” Many Rhodes Scholars are forging the way for the New World Order through their influence on the political, social, and entertainment realms. They range from communists to businessmen to members of the Council on Foreign relations. The following is an incomplete list of Rhodes Scholars who have held influential positions.
