MasterCard Scholarship Program For African Students at Stanford University – USA

The MasterCard Foundation education initiative at Stanford University USA will provide comprehensive support to 20 talented but economically disadvantaged students from Africa over the next eight years. The Scholars Program will support five (5) undergraduates from Sub-Saharan Africa each year, according to Karen Cooper, director of financial aid.

The first students will enroll after selection. They will receive comprehensive support for tuition, travel and other educational costs.

Eventually the program will fund 20 students, with the MasterCard Foundation providing $6.5 million over eight years. Additionally, the foundation will provide funding for academic and social support through a graduate assistant position at the Bechtel International Center.

How to Apply

The application process is the same for all applicants regardless of citizenship or country of residence.

Submit the $90 non-refundable application fee with your First-Year or Transfer Common Application and Stanford Supplement. Be sure to submit both forms successfully because Stanford will not refund the application fee under any circumstances.
