This August, The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program welcomed its newest cohort of Scholars to Michigan State University (MSU). 21 undergraduate and 12 graduate Scholars make up the fifth class to enter the program, as the largest group yet. Their addition enlarges The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program family at MSU to an incredible 101 current scholars –not to mention the programs' extension of 28 alumni. Some of the new Scholars hail from countries previously unseen in the program, including Eritrea, Lesotho, South Sudan, and Togo, which now expands scholar representation to 24 African countries.
Welcome back to the Scholars who are returning for another year at Michigan State University, who are sure to extend a warm embrace to their new peers. There is a promise of success, excitement, and plenty of fresh experiences and achievements for the MasterCard Scholars as they embark on the new academic year.
