From
student
to leader
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."
