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. 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.
