Go Back, Give Back


The vision of The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program is to create positive social and economic transformation in sub-Saharan Africa through education.

Scholars are encouraged to return to their home areas and or countries to invest their skills in the community and the entire country’s social and economic growth after study.

A global network of an estimated 15,000 Scholars will be unified by a common philosophy of change and ethical leadership. They will serve as mentors, role models and problem solvers in their communities.
