Financial Assistance & Support


The transition from high school to university is challenging for all students but particularly so far international students who have to adjust to a new culture and possibly a new language, away from family and friends. The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program and Makerere University understand this and have developed a package of academic and personal support.

The Scholars will receive comprehensive support as listed below;

  • Tuition and functional fees
  • Laptop, books and other learning materials
  • Accommodation, bedding’s and meals
  • Medical insurance
  • Stipend
  • Transport to and from home.
  • Psycho-social and mentor-ship support
  • Capacity building training in leadership, communication, entrepreneurship, financial literacy, Gender and Human rights.
