They are receiving support from the Alumni Elite Athlete Fund, made possible by donations from University of Bath graduates, to help with the costs of competing at the championships. The trio also each receive a Trendell Scholarship.
Eight teams will contest the championships, with Great Britain starting on Monday with what is likely to be a tough fixture against Jamaica.
That will be followed by games against Namibia on Tuesday and Uganda on Wednesday, with the following three days hosting the knockout stages.
The other teams involved are South Africa, USA, Ireland and Zimbabwe.
