The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program - University of California, Berkeley

Thank you for expressing your interest in The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program (http://mastercardfdnscholars.org/) at the University of California, Berkeley. UC Berkeley is one of several universities that has partnered with The MasterCard Foundation to provide The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program. This program offers talented, yet economically disadvantaged (bottom 40% income by country) students from Sub-Saharan Africa with comprehensive support for university education. At UC Berkeley, this program will provide holistic support – financial, academic, social, and career counseling – to 113 students from Sub-Saharan Africa from 2012 to 2020. The scholars will pursue both undergraduate and professional master's degrees. Scholars selected for this program have a demonstrated commitment to social change in their communities and on the continent.
To be considered for the MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program, both undergraduate and graduate degree seekers must first be admitted to the university through the regular admissions process. Therefore, questions regarding admission requirements should be directed toward Admissions Offices:

  1. Office of Undergraduate Admissions: http://admissions.berkeley.edu/internationalstudents
  2. Fact sheet: http://admissions.berkeley.edu/sites/default/files/docs/International_Fl...
  3. Admissions site for the Program: http://admissions.berkeley.edu/mastercardfoundation
  4. Graduate Admissions: http://www.grad.berkeley.edu/international/index.shtml
  5. Graduate admissions is largely determined by the degree program departments. We strongly recommend you contact them directly: http://grad.berkeley.edu/admissions/list.shtml

Tests required for admission: Please carefully review which exams are required for your programs and be sure to enroll as soon as possible. Most exams must be completed by December to be eligible for admission evaluation for the following fall. In rare cases, tests may be taken by January, but only if you are an undergraduate student. Contact Lin Larson in the Admissions Office if you believe this is necessary (linlarson@berkeley.edu), and be sure to mention that you are applying for the Program. If you need additional assistance regarding country-specific test-taking opportunities, please refer to the EducationUSA website: http://www.educationusa.info/centers.php?region=5#.UHNU9q6BymN
Test dates for the TOEFL exam: http://www.ets.org/Media/Tests/TOEFL/tclists/BOTH_view_all.html
We will contact you after you have been admitted, if you are eligible for the Scholarship. Eligibility depends strongly upon demonstrated financial need, a strong will to give back to your community, country, or continent through your field of study, and an expressed desire to return after completing your studies. Further scholarship application information will be available shortly. Please check back at http://africa.berkeley.edu/Fellowships/MasterCardScholarsProgram.php to get the most up-to-date information on the Program at UC Berkeley.
You may consider applying to more than one university that has partnered with The MasterCard Foundation. To date, there are 14 university and secondary school partners in this program. Please explore the other universities to see if any of them may better suit your needs, interests, and circumstances. Each university varies in admission requirements and programs offered. http://www.mastercardfdnscholars.org/partners.
We wish you all the best,
