Further information
The Beit Trust was established in 1906 by the will of Mr Alfred Beit, a financier and a director of the British South Africa Company. The Trust initially existed solely to create railways in Northern and Southern Rhodesia, but was later reconstituted to benefit education, health, welfare and the environment in Malawi, Zimbabwe and Zambia.

The Beit Strathclyde (BStrath) Scholarships were set up in 2016 to attract and select Engineering students from Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe who demonstrate the greatest potential to become leaders, decision-makers and opinion-formers in their home countries.

How to apply
Students wishing to be considered for a BStrath Scholarship should apply directly to the Beit Trust.

There are different application forms and procedures for students from each of the three countries covered by the BStrath scholarships. Please refer to the Beit Trust website for full details on how to apply and links to the appropriate application form.
