The Center for African Studies is pleased to announce a new phase of the Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program at the University of California, Berkeley. With the Mastercard Foundation, we are embarking on a ten-year partnership in 2020 to support 108 master’s degree students from Sub-Saharan African countries who are academically talented and committed to transformative change on the continent. The Program will recruit widely across Sub-Saharan Africa and will encourage applications particularly from women, people with disabilities, and those who are refugees or displaced. Since 2012, the MCF Scholars Program has supported over 120 students from Sub-Saharan African countries to pursue bachelor’s and master’s degrees at UC Berkeley.
