An integral component of the Program is the commitment from the Scholars to give back to their communities and countries of origin. Students demonstrate this commitment through volunteerism and community service, as well as other forms of experiential learning.
The goal of the Education and Learning Program is to enable access to quality, relevant tertiary education for economically disadvantaged youth and to develop next-generation leaders who will support social and economic transformation in their communities, Ghana, Africa and the world at large.
The goal of this program is to enable young people to transition to employment. It provides out-of-school, unemployed young people with market-relevant skills, connections to employers, and access to financial services.
Students selected for The Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program are provided with opportunities to realise their full potential.
