The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at Makerere University assists in connecting mentors with mentees.

Each MasterCard Foundation Scholar at Makerere University will be assigned a peer mentor with whom they are required to meet once a week for at least the first semester of their first year.

These mentors will offer their students psychosocial support and can provide advice on a wide range of relevant topics. In addition Makerere University Colleges and Departments offer academic mentorship to all students. The mode of mentorship is tailored to the needs and interests of the Scholar.
