About the MCFSP.

The Scholars Program provides talented people, particularly from Africa, with access to quality and relevant secondary and university education. The Scholars Program is a growing commitment and to date, the Program is committed over US$840 million to supporting the education and leadership development of over 35000 young people. The MasterCard Foundation believes that all young people, no matter their aspirations. Through a network of universities and non -governmental organizations, the Scholars Program ensures that students whose academic talent and promise exceed their financial resources, are equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to become the next generation of ethical leaders. These young people will create change that matters with in their communities and will usher in a new era of inclusive prosperity in Africa and beyond.
