Project: Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program
Amount: $9.0 million
Support 450 (290 undergraduate and 160 master’s-level) academically talented, yet financially disadvantaged students living with disabilities in completing a university education, while fostering their leadership skills and capacity to give back to their communities.
Pilot new models of Scholar support offerings by integrating accessibility tools (e.g., wheelchairs), learning materials (e.g., braille books), and rehabilitation lab access into each Scholar’s package.
