The MasterCard Foundation
Scholars at Duke University represent the intellect and energy of the youth of Sub-Saharan Africa. With a
financial commitment of $13.5 million from The MasterCard Foundation, Duke will educate seven classes of five students — a total of 35 students — over the next 10 years.
The Duke University class of 2016 and class of 2017 include ten of these outstanding scholars selected not only for their academic capabilities, but also for their desire to become change agents in Africa.
The MasterCard Foundation Scholars studying at Duke University are from South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, Mauritius, and Zimbabwe.
One of Duke’s great advantages for The MasterCard Foundation Scholars is the network of resources the university provides to scholars, their families, and
students who are interested in the program.
The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at Duke is open to students from sub-Saharan Africa who demonstrate financial need, academic ability and merit, and demonstrated commitment to improving the lives of others in their communities.
Students apply to Duke first, and are then considered for The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program.
How to Apply
By simply applying to Duke University all students from Africa will be considered for The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program based on academic talent, financial need, and interest in improving their communities.
