Meet our Scholars

The Meet our Scholars page is intended to showcase Beit Scholars by setting out their disciplines, achievements and the Beit partner universities they attended.

Each year, the Beit Trust receives over 300 scholarship applications which meet our criteria and have been accepted by the partner universities we work with in the UK and South Africa.  We are able, however, to grant no more than 20 scholarships annually.  In this context, the award of a Beit Scholarship is a major achievement and is either 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 like, therefore, to introduce you to some of our scholars from the past 5 years.  We are proud of their achievements and association with us.
