In partnership with the Blavatnik School of Government and Wadham College, the Beit Trust is offering a new scholarship at Oxford University. It is a Master in Public Policy (MPP), an intensive one-year postgraduate degree for current and future leaders. The successful scholar will study at the Blavatnik School of Government and be accommodated at Wadham for the academic year.

- Economy Class tickets are provided for the initial journey to the place of study, and on final return.
- No allowances are paid for spouses and other family members.
The process for applying for a Beit Scholarship is as follows:
- Only nationals of Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi, who are also resident in and intend to return to those countries, are eligible to apply;
- Applications should be for a one-year taught Master’s Degree (to UK universities); and a two-year taught Master’s in South Africa;
- Applications should be made directly to the partner universities listed above, and only to those universities, via their websites and in the period beginning September 2019 (although some application windows do not open until October. Their websites will guide you);
- As long as the courses to be pursued 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;
- Once you have a conditional acceptance or an offer from your chosen partner university, you should apply as early as possible to The Beit Trust for a scholarship
