The Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program aims to create a powerful network of youth and institutions that promote fair and inclusive economic progress in Africa. Initiated in 2012, this Program has helped about 45,000 African youngsters to complete secondary or higher education. To help Scholars and young Africans thrive, we recognize the importance of overcoming systemic educational challenges, enhancing institutional capabilities, fostering innovative approaches in key areas, and linking various players in the ecosystem to magnify our impact across Africa. In collaboration with young individuals, universities, NGOs, and other stakeholders in higher education, the Program is dedicated to establishing an environment where young people can access inclusive and pertinent education, transition smoothly to respectable and rewarding careers, and lead lives of significant change.
