The scholarship was a program launched in 2015 with funding from the Government of Canada through Global Affairs Canada, and the MasterCard Foundation. The programme was managed by the Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) in partnership with the Institute of Public Administration of Canada (IPAC) and in collaboration with the African Association of Public Administration and Management (AAPAM) and the Canadian Association of Programs in Public Administration (CAPPA). The program awarded full scholarships women and men from sub-Saharan Africa to pursue Master’s degree in public administration, public policy and public finances offered in one of the twenty eight reputable Canadian University. The main goal of the scholarship programme was to contribute to a strong and effective public sector in sub‐Saharan Africa through building the capacity of young African professionals to become leaders in public policy and administration. The programme commemorates the late Nelson Mandela’s commitment to social justice and equity. The programme saw 106 scholars successfully graduate with master’s degrees and return back to their home countries.
This program is offered to all ALT alumni as well as select members of AAPAM’s Young Professionals Network (YPN) and Le Programme canadien de bourses de la Francophonie (PCBF)
