Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
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.
