About Scholarship

McGill University and The MasterCard Foundation are pleased to offer The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at McGill University for the 2016-2017 academic year. This prestigious scholarship recognizes students who are residents and citizens of Sub-Saharan African countries (including French-speaking students), who come from the most challenged socioeconomic backgrounds and who show outstanding academic and leadership abilities.

Thanks to a $27 million financial commitment from The MasterCard Foundation over the next decade, the Program will provide academically talented, economically disadvantaged young people from Africa with access to quality university education. McGill will welcome 91 Scholars from Africa over the next ten years, some of whom will be coming from French-speaking countries.

In addition to financial support, Scholars are provided with a comprehensive support network that includes an array of mentoring and support services to ensure each student’s academic success, community service engagement and transition to socially relevant employment opportunities, when they return to Africa at the conclusion of their studies.

    August 15, 2016 at 7:28 am

    Hi sir, this is a great opportunity for me given by McGill as a display of humanitarian efforts. All my attempt to complete my secondary and University education was so alarming because of my poor financial background. As a result of this my educational career did not assume a smooth flow of academic success. I graduated in a very stressful environment with the University of calabar Nigeria and stayed at home for eight years not until this opportunity that I have found in McGill. However I my name is Paul ogrinya with contact information +237653789168 +237661041614. Glad to hear from you again soon.
