APPLY: 2021 Online Mastercard Foundation Scholarship at the University of Edinburgh, UK

If you are a graduate, or are soon to graduate, as a Mastercard Foundation Scholar from a Mastercard Foundation partner institution, find out more about applying to study a postgraduate qualification online.

 

Gaining an Online Masters is an excellent way to earn a qualification which is equivalent to on-campus study, while at the same time continuing to work flexibly and live at home. Online Masters qualifications though the University of Edinburgh are fully equivalent to Masters degrees taught on campus.

The Scholars Program at the University of Edinburgh will provide postgraduate online scholarships to students from Africa with great academic and leadership potential but few educational opportunities.

 

Scholarship Details

On top of financial support, Scholars will participate in activities as part of the wider Scholars Program with the University of Edinburgh,

including regular online workshops with our scholars, online coaching and support, and the opportunity to attend regional scholar-led workshops and events.

In order to be eligible to apply for the scholarship, applicants must:

  • You must be a graduate or be about to graduate as a Mastercard Foundation Scholar in a Mastercard Foundation partner institution. 
  • Applicants must qualify academically for admission to the University of Edinburgh for a relevant degree programme listed above.

You can find out more about postgraduate entry requirements for your country or be in touch with us at [email protected].
  • You must be a citizen of an African country (with the exception of Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco & Tunisia), whose personal circumstances would make accepting an online study offer from the University of Edinburgh difficult. Applications from Malawi, Ethiopia, Mauritius, Rwanda, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe are particularly welcome.
  • You should demonstrate a track record of leadership and service within your community and former school/university.
  • You must be able to present economic circumstances which show you lack financial means to pursue higher education in your home country or elsewhere

Scholarship Duration and Reward

The scholarship will cover the full tuition fees and a small study stipend to allow for access to high-quality internet. The scholarship is designed to cover three-years of part-time online study.

Students will receive comprehensive support to remove barriers to study in Edinburgh and will benefit from extracurricular opportunities including retreats and internships.
