  • The Trust cannot consider applications from those who have already begun a course.
  • The Trust will only consider applicants with First Class/Distinction or Upper Second Class Honours degrees (or equivalent) at undergraduate level.

How to Apply For The Beit Trust Scholarship

Visit the official website of The Beit Trust Scholarship below for the application form and other information about the The Beit Trust Scholarship program.

For UK Partner University applications:

  1. Make your application for admission directly to one or more of the Partner Universities listed above, and only to those universities. Please apply via their websites, which will guide you.
  2. Notify the relevant university, as part of your study application, that you will be approaching the Beit Trust for scholarship funding.
  3. As long as the course/s you wish to pursue are available, you may apply to more than one Partner University at a time. Indeed, we recommend you do so, to increase your chances of acceptance, and to broaden the scholarship opportunities available.
  4. Once you have an offer from your chosen Partner University, you should apply as early as possible to the Beit Trust for a scholarship.
  5. Your application, with all the supporting documents, must be uploaded via the Scholarship application link, below in green.
  6. You need three referees: Academic, Character and Employer (as appropriate). They have separate and individual forms, the link for which must be forwarded to them by you, the applicant. The link becomes available once you have submitted your scholarship application form electronically.
  7. We prefer referees to use the link provided in the application form. If, however, they can only provide their reference by email, please forward them the relevant forms, which you can download below.

Download Academic Reference Form – Download Character Reference Form – Download Employer Reference Form

The completed forms must be returned directly from the referee via email to scholarships@beittrust.org.uk

For South African Partner University applications:

Due to the South African University application process opening after our Scholarship application deadline of 19 February 2024, we will accept scholarship applications for South African Universities for the year 2025/2026 without a confirmed offer.

Please follow steps 3 to 7 above. Where you are asked to upload your university offer letter, please provide instead the details of the courses and universities that you will be applying for, in PDF format. Your scholarship application will then be considered alongside the applicants for UK universities, as part of the same entry year cohort.

The Trust will sift your application as part of our selection process. If you are successful and shortlisted for an interview, you will go to the relevant Beit Trust national scholarship board.

If you are then offered a scholarship from the Trust – and not all those selected for interview receive an offer – you will then need to apply for entry to a South African Partner University (as set out in our website). You may indicate in your application that you have been awarded a Beit Scholarship.

Should you get an offer, we ask that you submit it to us as soon as you receive it. Should you not be successful in obtaining an offer, the scholarship will not, unfortunately, be available to you.

Please ensure you have all the documents below ready to upload electronically.  Once you start the application process, you must complete it, as you will not be able to save answers and return to it later. You will, however, be able to scroll through the form before you begin to fill it in. You will be required to upload the following documents with your application:

  1. A signed Medical Certificate Form from your doctor.  This will need to be completed before you begin the application process below.  Please download the form here: Medical Certificate Form
  2. A copy of your offer letter from a UK Partner University/s; or a PDF document detailing the university/s and course/s you will apply to at a South African Partner University/s.
  3. Degree results (incl. certificates of importance and full transcripts).
  4. Curriculum Vitae (CV).
  5. A personal statement to explain in your own words (no longer than 500) how you think a postgraduate degree will benefit your country and its development.
  6. A clear recent photograph of yourself: not a passport photo, but something that shows you to your best advantage.
  7. A clear copy of your valid passport, showing date of issue and expiry.  Please ensure it is valid for the duration of your proposed studies; and that sufficient blank pages are available to accommodate visa and travel stamp requirements.
