The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program

The MasterCard Foundation announced its partnership with Michigan State University in The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program, supported by $45 million in funding to MSU, the largest cash commitment in our university’s history. The Program, a $500 million education initiative, will provide talented, yet financially disadvantaged youth—especially those from Africa—with access to quality educational experiences that are critical to their success in the global economy and ultimately to the success of that economy.

MSU will support 185 Scholars—the most Scholars among U.S. partner institutions in the Program—and will build experiences, values, and competencies that will enable the students to give back to their communities and home countries. Apply
