MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (MCFSP at KNUST)
Our goal is to raise the next generation of ethical and transformative leaders who would influence positive forward-looking changes in their respective home countries specifically and on the African Continent as a whole.
MCFSP at KNUST provides comprehensive scholarships for access to quality university education to academically talented, yet economically disadvantaged young people in Ghana and Africa.
The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program offers an opportunity for scholars to receive holistic training that empowers them to become effective change leaders.
The Program provides an array of services including mentorship, ethical leadership seminars, skills training, that will lead to the scholar’s academic success, community engagement and transition to employment opportunities, which will equip the scholar to be a global citizen.
- The MasterCard Foundation targets academically talented yet economically disadvantaged young people in Africa who will contribute to the transformation of the continent through their knowledge, skills, attitudes and values evidenced by their leadership.
- Community service and internships are essential components of the Program.
