As of 2017, Sciences Po and the Mastercard Foundation provide full scholarships to students with great academic potential and limited financial resources. Over six years, this program will support 120 students from Sub-Saharan Africa admitted to its undergraduate, graduate and summer programs. This exceptional scholarship program aims to recruit talented students who aspire to shape the future of the African continent and help them develop their full potential.
In 2019, 5 scholarships at the Bachelor’s level, 8 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 January 15, 2019 for the Master's scholarship, January 31, 2019 for the Bachelor's scholarship and February 18, 2019 for the Summer School scholarship.
