University of California & MasterCard Foundation Fully Funded Scholarship in USA, 2018

 

Deadline: November 30, 2017 ( For Undergraduates) / varies for Masters Programs.

Applications are now open for the 2017/18 MasterCard Foundation Scholarship at UC Berkeley. The University of California, Berkeley has partnered with the MasterCard Foundation in a collaborative, global network of education institutions and non-profit organizations that believe education is a catalyst for social and economic advancement. The Program aims to benefit 15,000 young people over 10 years, mostly in Sub-Saharan Africa.

The University of California, Berkeley is one of the world’s leading academic institutions. Widely known as “Cal,” the campus is renowned for the size and quality of its libraries and laboratories, the scope of its research and publications, and the distinction of its faculty and students. Founded in 1868, the University of California, Berkeley is one of the world’s preeminent public universities, boasting a distinguished faculty (with 22 Nobel laureates to date) and more than 350 academic programs. At the heart of Berkeley’s excellence are its 1,582 full-time faculty members, dispersed among 130 academic units and 80 interdisciplinary research units. Berkeley is home to more than 25,000 undergraduates and more than 10,000 graduate students — and produces more PhDs annually than any other American university. It ranks at or near the top in fields ranging from engineering and the core sciences to the social sciences, arts, and humanities. In 2010, the National Research Council awarded Berkeley the largest number of highly ranked graduate programs in the country. Of the 52 programs assessed, 48 were within the top 10 range.

The future of Africa will be shaped by its young people, including those talented, yet economically disadvantaged students who face significant barriers to accessing quality education.
