Scholarship Description: The Beit Trust offers annually a small number of Scholarships abroad for postgraduate studies or research to graduates who are domiciled in Malawi, Zambia or Zimbabwe (the beneficial area). Scholarships are taken up at a university in the United Kingdom, Ireland or South Africa, for study in a subject of the individual’s choice appropriate to the needs of the beneficial area. Duration is normally for a maximum of three years at the discretion of Trustees. In addition, awards for a one-year taught Masters Degree are offered at the University of Leeds, known as the Beit-Leeds Scholarship (BL); at the University of Reading, known as the Beit-Reading Scholarship (BRG); and at Rhodes University, known as the Beit-Rhodes Scholarship (BRU). BL Scholarship expenses are shared equally between The Beit Trust and the University of Leeds, which undertakes the administration. BRG Scholarship expenses are shared between The Beit Trust and the University of Reading, which again undertakes the administration. Some BRU Scholarship expenses are met by Rhodes University, but the Beit Trust handles the administration. There is no academic difference between these shared scholarships and fully-funded scholarships. Many Beit Scholars choose these popular Africa-friendly universities where shared costs permit more scholarships to be offered to the beneficial area.
