Meet our Scholars

This Meet our Scholars page helps showcase Beit Scholars: their disciplines, achievements and the Beit partner universities they attended. Each year, over 300 scholarship applicants meet our criteria and are accepted by our UK and South African partner universities. We are able, however, to grant only 20 scholarships annually. In this context, a Beit Scholarship is a major achievement: the springboard to a career, or a ladder to greater achievement from within an existing profession.  

At the same time, the Trust expects our scholars to give something back to their home countries, to re-invest their knowledge and skills, and to boost national human capital for the benefit of the people of Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi. This is the central tenet of Alfred Beit’s Will and the main reason the Beit Trust maintains its Scholarship program. We would, therefore, like you meet some of our recent scholars.  We are proud of their achievements and association with us.
