Some 200 students from Africa and Other Developing Countries will benefit from the chance to study at University of Edinburgh, thanks to a new package of scholarships. Instructions and links to application is on this post below.
The University’s partnership with The MasterCard Foundation will allocate $27 million over seven years. It will ensure access to education for bright young leaders who have a personal commitment to changing the world around them and improving the lives of others.
Full scholarships will be offered to 80 undergraduate and 120 postgraduate African students. The initiative will enable the University to offer opportunities to the brightest and best African Scholars.
Munini Musembi, from Nairobi, Kenya, is one of the first undergraduate recipients. Munini will take her first steps in further education and shortly begin studying mechanical engineering at Edinburgh.
I was so elated when I received The MasterCard Foundation scholarship to study in Edinburgh. This will be an enlightening experience for us as the first cohort of MasterCard Foundation Scholars. I hope that our experiences will also benefit future Scholars at the University. It was a long process to get here, but I am very grateful for the opportunity.
