Sciences Po Mastercard Foundation Scholars Programme 2024/2025 For Undergraduate And Graduate Africa


The Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program at Sciences Po aims to support 120 talented African students through their studies and to offer the next generation of leaders a world-class social science education, so they can go on to become changemakers in their home countries.


These scholarships cover the full cost of tuition fees at Sciences Po and living costs in France during the study.

As well as funding their studies, Sciences Po will offer scholars a specific suite of resources to ensure they have appropriate academic support and to facilitate their transition from education to employment:

  • An orientation programme and individualised academic advising throughout their studies at Sciences Po

  • A mentor programme offered in collaboration with the Africa Division of Sciences Po Alumni

  • Career guidance and support: an online job platform dedicated to professional opportunities in Africa (internships and first jobs), access to our business incubator and the network of employers and alumni working in Africa, and specific career workshops.


The scholarships are awarded to students from sub-Saharan African countries with an outstanding academic record and strong leadership potential, but who face financial and other barriers to higher education.

Deadline: 3rd of December 2023
