MasterCard Foundation Scholarship at the University of Pretoria, 2021
Applications for the MasterCard Foundation Scholarship at the University of Pretoria are currently being accepted. The scholarship is offered by the Mastercard Foundation (MCF) in partnership with the University of Pretoria to high achieving African students interested in studying at postgraduate levels (Master, and Ph.D.), commencing in January 2021.
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 the University of Pretoria (UP). Graduates must return to their home countries on completion of their studies and give back to their communities.
