The Beit Trust has partnership agreements with the universities below. This enables the Trust to share costs, and to increase the number of scholarships it can fund. For this reason, only applicants with acceptances from the universities listed will be eligible for Beit Scholarships.
There are seven universities in the United Kingdom: Cambridge, Edinburgh, Glasgow (bio-medical disciplines only), Leeds, Oxford, Strathclyde (engineering disciplines only), and St Andrews (computer science only).
There are currently four active partners in South Africa: Rhodes, Stellenbosch, UCT and Wits.
These partnerships allow us to award joint scholarships (e.g. Beit-Cambridge, Beit-UCT, etc.), and may change from time to time. Applicants must first apply to, and be accepted by, a Beit partner university before applying to the Trust for a scholarship.
Beit Trust Scholarships are for Postgraduate degrees. We do not provide scholarships for undergraduate work.
By Act of Parliament, the Beit Trust supports ONLY students who are nationals of Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi, and who currently live there. In addition, the Trust cannot consider applications from those who have already begun a course.
The next round of Beit Scholarships will be awarded for the academic year beginning September 2021 for universities in the UK; and January 2022 for universities in South Africa. Scholarships for the academic year beginning September 2020 (UK) and January 2021 (SA) have already been awarded.
Applications should be for a one-year taught Master’s Degree (to UK universities); and a two-year taught Master’s in South Africa;
Applications should be made directly to the partner universities listed above, and only to those universities, via their websites and in the period beginning September 2020 (although some application windows do not open until October. Their websites will guide you);
