Applications are open for the 2021 MasterCard Foundation Scholarships – Fully Funded. The scholarship is open to specific nationalities and the deadline is 31st October 2021.

The University of Pretoria (UP) in partnership with the Mastercard Foundation (MCF) is currently offering scholarships for high achieving African students interested in studying at postgraduate levels, commencing in January 2020.

The Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program (MCFSP) targets academically talented yet economically disadvantaged young people in Africa who will contribute to the transformation of the continent through their knowledge, skills, attitudes and values evidenced by their leadership. Community service and internships are essential components of the Program. The MCFSP offers a full scholarship to selected students who have been provisionally admitted to study towards a postgraduate degree at UP. Graduates must return to their home countries on completion of their studies and give back to their communities.

Eligibility for 2021 MasterCard Foundation Scholarships 

Scholars in the Program are primarily from Africa. In recent years, the continent has experienced unprecedented economic progress and political resurgence. More than 60 percent of its population is under the age of 25, making it the continent with the youngest demographics. Yet, Sub-Saharan Africa is also the region with the lowest enrollment rates in secondary and university education. The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program supports economically disadvantaged young people from across the continent, and encourages them to apply their knowledge towards the betterment of their home communities and countries.
