About the Program

The Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program at The University of Edinburgh believes that all young people, no matter their starting point in life, should have an equal chance to gain a quality education and pursue their aspirations to improve the lives of others.

The University of Edinburgh offers a fully funded academic and transformative leadership program for undergraduate and postgraduate students from Sub-Saharan Africa.

Students will receive comprehensive support to remove barriers to study in Edinburgh and will benefit from extracurricular opportunities including summer schools and internships. The program aims to build the abilities and talents of each student so they can make a difference to their home countries and communities on their return.

 

The Scholars Program at the University of Edinburgh will provide 80 undergraduate scholarships to students from Africa with great academic and leadership potential but few educational opportunities.

25 scholarships are available for the 2018/2019 academic year which will cover the full tuition fees and expenses for accommodation and maintenance.

On top of financial support, Scholars will participate in activities as part of the wider Scholars Program at the University of Edinburgh including a series of summer schools, project-based placements, mentorship, and activities during each academic year.
