About US:
The Africa
Educational Trust (AET) was founded in 1958 to support education for African
people, particularly those involved in the continent’s struggle for
independence. The founders were strong opponents of colonial rule and brought
together prominent activists, such as the Reverend Michael Scott, with leading
academics in African Studies including Professor Kenneth Kirkwood and Professor
Roland Oliver. Together, the founders raised funds to support African students,
especially exiles and refugees from white minority regimes in Southern Africa.
This enabled them to obtain higher education in Europe (mostly the UK) and gain
the skills and knowledge necessary to build and lead independent states.
