Detailed Description

The Zambia Society Trust is seeking applications for its Education Grants program to a small number of students to pursue further studies on completion of their secondary education.

The Trust assists disadvantaged Zambian students to pursue educational, technical, vocational and training courses in Zambia at recognised and approved institutions.

The partial grants awarded will usually cover tuition and examination fees and sometimes accommodation costs. Consideration is given to applicants who have successfully started a course but have two more years to complete. The Trust supports young, able students to enable them to gain employment and also encourages practical courses in agriculture and trades.

The initial short list is drawn up by a Zambia-based advisory group, which takes into account the student’s record and circumstances, the value, cost and length of the course, and issues of disability, gender and geographical location. Final selection is completed by the UK committee.

Funding Information

  • Because the resources are limited the maximum grant awarded for each complete year of study is usually ZK 12,000.00.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The Trust awards a small number of partial grants to selected Zambians who, because of financial constraints, are unable to pursue their studies beyond the Grade 12 level.
  • Applications must be for courses within Zambia at recognised institutions.
  • The courses should normally be related to the fields of engineering, trades, technology, business, agriculture, education and nursing.
  • Short courses of six months and those of one or two years will be considered, also longer courses. However grants are awarded for a maximum period of 2 years and the final two years only will be supported of a longer course.
  • Applications for grants for more than 2 years will not be considered.
  • Successful students would need to provide evidence that no outstanding fees are due to the institution.
