The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at McGill University

McGill University and The MasterCard Foundation have partnered to offer The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at McGill, beginning in the 2013-2014 academic year. Thanks to a $27 million financial commitment from The MasterCard Foundation over the next decade, the Program will provide academically talented, economically disadvantaged young people from Africa with access to quality university education.

McGill will welcome 91 Scholars from Africa over the next ten years, some of whom will be coming from French-speaking countries. The Scholars will receive full financial support to pursue their degree program and will be provided with a comprehensive support network that will include mentoring and support services, enhanced English as a Second Language courses (if applicable), and the opportunity to participate in community service initiatives, campus student engagement activities and up to two internships in Africa.
