The MasterCard Foundation (MCF) has generously supported the training of microfinance practitioners, and is offering for this year a special support for MFT Tuition Fee Scholarship Assistance, to qualified individuals seeking to attend this year event.

MCF scholarships will cover full tuition fee of USD $4,300. The tuition cost of the program includes courses and program materials.
