The University of Pretoria (U.P.) has partnered with Master Card Foundation to offer scholarships to the underprivileged.
The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Programme targets economically disadvantaged young people in various African communities whom it aims to empower so that they could later be able to contribute to the transformation of the continent.
Applicants from outside South Africa are expected to meet requirements of the Universities of South Africa in order to be awarded the scholarship.
The applicants are also required to have been admitted to the University of Pretoria to study in the fields of Engineering, Agriculture Science and Economics and Information Technology in order to apply for the scholarship.
Meanwhile, University of Pretoria Recruitment Officer Asanda Vumazonke and Administrative Assistant Lebohang Sebiloane will be in Zambia from 2nd April, 2017 to hold sensitization meetings with learning institutions in Lusaka, Kabwe and the Copperbelt in readiness for the 2018 entries.
This is according to a statement issued to ZANIS in Lusaka today by First Secretary for Press at the Zambian High Commission in Pretoria, Nicky Shabolyo.
