The Mastercard Foundation, partnered with Sciences Po, provides full scholarships to students from Sub-Saharan Africa who have great academic potential but limited financial resources. Over six years (from 2017 to 2023), this programme will support a total of 126 students admitted to its undergraduate, graduate and summer programmes. This exceptional scholarship programme aims to recruit talented students who aspire to shape the future of the African continent and help them develop their full potential.

In 2020, 5 scholarships at the Bachelor’s level, 15 scholarships at the Master’s level and 12 scholarships for the Summer School will be awarded to students from Sub-Saharan African countries with an outstanding academic record and strong leadership potential, but who face financial and other barriers to higher education.

Mastercard Foundation scholarships are awarded in collaboration with a network of partner institutions authorised to nominate candidates. 

Deadlines to apply are December 5, 2019 for the Master's scholarship, January 29, 2020 for the Bachelor's scholarship and January 19, 2020 for the Summer School scholarship.
