The Beacon Scholarship is a leadership development programme that grows and delivers 'change-makers'. We find children with leadership potential who have financial need; provide them with access to the highest quality education; offer leadership training and 'high-touch' mentoring; and create a vertical pathway for transition into leadership positions. The vision is to develop a group of ethical change-makers who have a multiplier effect to generate positive social change.

The Beacon Equity Trust has built key Partnerships to enable access to top schools and leading international universities via matched-funding scholarships: funding for each Beacon Scholar's education is usually split equally between Beacon Partners, The Beacon Equity Trust, and Parents/Sponsors/Guardians.

As well as providing information for potential applicants, this website serves as a focal point for the community of current and past Beacon Scholars, their parents/sponsors/guardians and Mentors.
