The John R. Rhodes Scholarship was established in 1979 through generous donations from friends and family of the late John Rhodes.
This prestigious scholarship, valued at $3,000 is offered annually to a student entering their first year of university studies from secondary school who has demonstrated academic achievement and community leadership while involved in political, social, or academic activities.
This scholarship is renewable for up to three additional years providing the recipient maintains a minimum average of 80% each academic year on 30 credits taken in two consecutive terms.
Algoma University proudly hosts the annual John R. Rhodes Scholarship Dinner. This event serves to honour the memory of John R. Rhodes by raising funds to offer this prestigious scholarship to meritorious students at Algoma University. Each year, up to four students may carry this scholarship, requiring a total financial commitment of $12,000 per year.
Algoma University is committed to providing scholarships and bursaries to Algoma University students now, and into the future. The University currently manages a number of endowed funds that provide scholarships and bursaries to Algoma U students. These funds are held in perpetuity, and the interest earned by these funds is used to provide financial awards to students.
New endowed funds are created with donations of $20,000 or more, sometimes pledged over a period of three to five years.
Each year, the John Rhodes Scholarship Dinner Planning Committee selects an honourary speaker who embodies the integrity, leadership, vision and commitment to community services that was the hallmark of John R. Rhodes.
