Mastercard Scholarship Recipients For 2018-2019 Academic Year

The Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM), is pleased to announce the Second cohort of the Mastercard@RUFORUM scholarship recipients for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Since July 2016, RUFORUM, in partnership with MasterCard Foundation, Gulu University and Egerton University are implementing an eight year programme aimed at transforming African agricultural universities and their graduates to better respond to development challenges through enhanced application of science, technology, business and innovation for rural agricultural transformation. This eight year Project will support the training of 220 (110 undergraduate and 110 postgraduate) economically disadvantaged students from across Africa.  The Programme further provides opportunities for transformative action research using the RUFORUM Community Action Research Programme (CARP+) to enhance university-led community impact and the RUFORUM Agricultural Enterprises Challenge Program (RECAP), for developing a critical mass of young business leaders by providing a supporting environment.
