Since the founding benefaction by the Rhodes Trust brought the partnership that is The Mandela Rhodes Foundation into being in 2003, the MRF and its flagship Scholarships programme in particular has benefited from the extraordinary generosity of major donors who have made funds available to establish further Mandela Rhodes Scholarships on a sustainable basis. These donors are recognised and honoured in the Yearbook. Anyone who might be interested in exploring this route and would like further details should make direct contact with the Operations Director of The Mandela Rhodes Foundation, Ernst Gerber, at +27 21 424 3346, or via e-mail
