Apply for Mastercard Foundation Scholarships for Undergraduate Study

Scholarships are awarded in collaboration with a network of partner institutions accepting the terms and conditions of the nomination framework. To be considered, all applications must be supported by an institution accepting the terms and conditions of the Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program.

The scholarship is awarded for the duration of the Science Po Bachelor of Arts programme (three years) and only for the Europe-Africa specialisation (dual-degree programmes excluded) taught on the Reims campus.

The programme hinges on a multidisciplinary educational approach, offering a core curriculum in the social sciences - law, economics, history, political science, humanities and sociology - and a special focus on Africa. Students complete their third year on a university exchange at one of Sciences Po's partner universities in Africa.
