Since its creation, the Foundation has partnered with a number of worldwide Non-governmental organizations and core partners aiming to ameliorate financial life, primarily in the Global South.  Its objective is to use a $2 billion endowment on Microfinance programs. With these programs, the Foundation’s goal is to make global economics more accessible to people around the world. These programs also strive to give youth around the world new educational experiences and access to financial services and programs.

The Mastercard Foundation’s Scholar Program is a globally recognized program that helps youth gain access to new educational opportunities thus furthering social and economic progress among disadvantaged communities. The Scholars Program is aimed at disadvantaged, but academically inclined individuals, interested in expanding their education.[5]

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS MASTERCARD FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP:

EDUCATION & LEARNING PROGRAM:

Millions of young people in Africa lack access to a quality education. Only  20 percent of young people move from primary to secondary school and only 5 percent transition to university. Research shows that education is an effective path out of poverty, particularly for women.

Mastercard foundation  defines education as learning that takes place both within and outside of the formal school system. Our partnerships focus on providing quality, accessible secondary and tertiary education, as well as skills development for those living in poverty

With chronic unemployment and underemployment on the continent, we believe it is important to focus on appropriate education that addresses foundational skills, such as literacy and numeracy, as well as market-relevant skills that young people need to transition to employment, such as digital literacy and financial management.

SCHOLARS PROGRAM:

Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program provides access to secondary and higher education for young people who are committed to giving back to their communities.

This Mastercard foundation program is implemented through our partner universities and NGOs that serve young people from vulnerable backgrounds.  The application process and decision-making is managed by each partner in the Program.  Students are considered for the Program must be academically strong and have demonstrated a commitment to making a difference in the lives of others.
