Charles Wallace India Trust (CWIT) is an award or scholarship trust for students of arts, humanities and heritage conservation. Charles Wallace (1855-1916) was the resident of Kolkata and founder of Shaw Wallace Company. This scholarship upon his name enables the Indian students to fulfill their artistic, professional or educational aspirations by studying in UK and making their career brighter by widening their international contacts. Charles Wallace India Trust is an agreement between Indian and British government, in year 1981, and is run by four trustees- Ingval Maxwell, Dr Yasmin Khan, Caroline Douglas and Colin Perchard. One of the four trustees is nominated by the British Council (Colin Perchard is a nominee of British Council).
