The Charles Wallace India Trust (CWIT) is an arts, heritage conservation and humanities scholarship fund. It was established in 1981 and funded from the estate of Charles William Wallace.
Wallace was born in Calcutta in 1855 and died in London in 1916. His business interests in India and South Asia flourished and he believed his modest fortune should benefit the people among whom he had made it. For nearly thirty years CWIT has offered scholarships and grants for Indians working in these fields to spend time in the UK.
