Rhodes University is home to students of all races, classes and cultural backgrounds and we are proud of the equitable and cosmopolitan nature of our student body. To maintain this diversity it is necessary to devise a plan that consistently deliver this diverse group to Rhodes, but unfortunately that’s not the case and this is due to socio-economic situations.
Through this strategy we hope to attract individuals from underprivileged backgrounds that are academically capable to benefit from a Rhodes education.
Students who might not have had the chance to exercise their potential through tertiary education will be given the opportunity to do so.
To nurture excellence and ensure that all our students continue to thrive and graduate, Rhodes has a number of student support programs. These include the Foundation phase and the Trojan Academic Initiative – an academic mentorship program for first years.
We want to create a strong undergraduate as a base for our postgraduate trajectory as we seek to position Rhodes as a destiny of choice for postgrad studies in South Africa
GOAL: Raise R150 million to attract financially needy students at Undergraduate level
