to change
for Africa

The University of Toronto is proudly partnering with The MasterCard Foundation to develop Africa's next generation of leaders. Thanks to the Foundation's visionary support, U of T can now provide 67 African students with one of the world's top-ranked educations—in one of the world's most multi-cultural cities. The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program opens up boundless opportunities for young Africans from economically disadvantaged communities, but with academic talent, potential to lead, and motivation to make a difference. As U of T graduates and global citizens, they will return to Africa with the tools to change lives within their communities and across borders.

"This scholarship is more than a dream come true. Just by getting it, I know I've encouraged people back home. It gives you a chance to shine, and through your light, everybody can see a ray."
