Making higher education more accessible

Making higher education accessible to all is the aim of Enhance, an initiative offering different scholarship opportunities to young people coming from a disadvantaged socio-economic background. The Malta Trust Foundation believes in inclusive education as a prerequisite for an inclusive society. Enhance seeks to break the cycle of poverty and inequity by supporting and empowering young people to reach their full potential through formal education.


The ongoing enriching academic scholarship programme that commenced in 2017 was made possible through Progetto Mediterraneo, a project funded by Fondazione Terzo Pilastro Internazionale in Rome. Three undergraduate students were sponsored to pursue their Business Studies at the Luiss University in Rome – one commencing studies in September 2018 with the other two students embarking on their journey a year later. In June 2019. The Malta Trust Foundation, in collaboration with Fondazione Terzo Pilastro Internazionale facilitated a memorandum of understanding between the University of Malta, and the LUISS University in Rome enabling participating students to graduate with a double degree.

The vision of The Malta Trust Foundation is to establish long-term commitments and collaborations with recognized academic entities, in order to sustain and support the development and growth of disadvantaged young people through formal education opportunities.

Another scholarship programme was formalised in August 2019, through the signing of a memorandum of understanding between The Malta Trust Foundation and IDEA Education Malta. This collaboration has developed into further learning opportunities for eligible students to study at Masters level. Through this programme another three young people have continued their studies in the areas of management and governance.
