About the Beit Trust

The Trust was established in 1906 by the Will of Alfred Beit, a financier, philanthropist and director of the British South Africa Company.

He had many interests, including the development of the railway system in what was then Rhodesia. On his death in 1906, at the age of 53, he left a substantial legacy to a wide range of charitable causes.

In 2022, the Trust awarded 22 Scholarships at British and South African universities, by means of generous academic partnerships with leading institutions. Beit Trust Scholarships are for Postgraduate degrees only.
