The Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program supports Scholars for up to two internships in their home countries, typically from May to August. These internships provide an opportunity for Scholars to maintain personal connections and to explore the African professional world. While on internship, Scholars expand their professional networks and harness practical skills related to their studies and future employment.
Scholars have been involved across the spectrum of Africa’s economic, intellectual and social life. From the mines of Ghana to the hospitals of Tanzania; working with Rwandese youth and Malawian app developers; living in thriving metropolises, rural settings and company towns, the diversity of McGill’s Scholars is matched by the range of their internship experiences.
