The Beit Trust

The Beit Trust was established in 1906 through the Will of Alfred Beit, a financier and philanthropist. Up to twenty Beit Scholarships are awarded each year, jointly funded with partner universities like Cambridge.

They are open to nationals of Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi who are also permanently resident in their countries (and to those nationals only). Applicants must have a conditional offer from Cambridge before applying to the Beit Trust, via the website:  

Two Beit-Cambridge Scholarships are available annually and the selection process is competitive. Applicants must have at least an Upper Second undergraduate degree (2:1), in a subject of developmental benefit to their home country. Work experience in a relevant field is strongly recommended between undergraduate and postgraduate degrees; and the Trust welcomes evidence of leadership potential in applicants’ chosen specialisations.

The Beit website above provides detailed guidance on application procedures for eligible candidates. Good luck.
