Mastercard Scholarship Application

The Mastercard Microfinance Scholars Program Selection Process
We will award several MasterCard Foundation Microfinance Scholars Program scholarships through a competitive application process. Please read the eligibility criteria below and complete the MasterCard Foundation Scholarship, (above). We require at least a 10% contribution from scholarship applicants to attend the course. Higher levels of contributions improve your chances of acceptance.

If you commit to paying a contribution for your participation in the course, you will be required to make this payment as soon as you have been accepted to the program. If you do not make the payment within two weeks of notification of your award, you may forfeit your scholarship opportunity.

Selection Preferences:

  • Practitioners who have at least two years of experience in the microenterprise development field
  • Practitioners who work in Africa
  • Women practitioners
  • Practitioners who work for NGO or Development Finance Institutions and policy development organizations
  • Candidates coming from disadvantaged backgrounds, preferably from rural and resource-poor areas
  • Candidates who can contribute at least 10% of the tuition fee

Recommendation Criteria:
Scholarship recommendations will be determined by the following criteria:

  • How well does the applicant meet the selection preferences listed above?
  • What is the stated financial need of, and actual support committed from each candidate?
  • Can the candidates make a contribution of at least 10% of the tuition?
  • Based on the candidate’s stated background profile, how will the scholarship make an impact on their professional development and to the organization?

Refund Information:

If you cannot attend the SMDP Online course, you may request a refund in writing or via email. Requests received before April 22, will be refunded in full, less a $25 processing fee. There will be no refunds for cancellations received after that date. It can take up to 4 weeks once you request a refund for payment to be processed. The refund will be remitted in the form it was received. For example, credit card payments will be issued a credit back to the original card the charge was made on (due to credit card regulations we are unable to make exceptions to this policy), and wire transfers will be refunded via wire.
