How To Apply For Mastercard Scholars Program At University Of Capetown by latestupdate: 7:50am On Jun 20
Deadline: August 31, 2018

The call for applications for Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program at University of Cape Town (UCT) in the 2019 academic year is now open. The Mastercard Foundation has partnered with the University of Cape Town (UCT) to provide 338 scholarships over 10 years to academically talented yet economically disadvantaged students from Sub-Saharan Africa for study at UCT.

The Scholars Program is a $700 million initiative to educate young people – particularly from Africa – to lead change and make a positive social impact in their communities. Scholars will receive comprehensive scholarships, academic support, peer mentorship, career guidance, internship opportunities, transition-to-work support and access to a global alumni network.

Over the 10-year period (2014 – 2024), sixty students will be awarded scholarships to complete an undergraduate qualification and 240 students will be awarded support to obtain qualifications at Honours (as of 2016) and Masters level. In order to be considered for the scholarship, applicants must meet all the eligibility criteria, including the admission criteria for their chosen course of study at UCT.

The scholarship’s tenure is for the full period of the academic program for which the Undergraduate Scholar has enrolled, with the second and subsequent years dependent on satisfactory academic progress and co-curricular involvement.

Tenure for the Honours level scholarships is one year. For Masters level the scholarships tenure is two years, dependent on academic progress and co-curricular participation of the Scholar.

Rephrase.

SA is not good for those who are into illegal stuff.
Stop generalising.


Most of the people who are reported killed or whatever are into one shady stuff or the other. Their profile says alot.

Have you ever heard that a Nigerian professional was killed? No. It's all those people who have no clearly defined job.
