Michigan State University is getting $45 million to help provide disadvantaged youth - especially those from Africa - with access to high-quality education.

The East Lansing school announced this week the money would support 185 scholars throughout the nine-year program, which includes 100 four-year undergraduates and 85 master's degree students. It is part of a $500 million effort called The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program.

Michigan State University is among six U.S. institutions involved. The first undergraduate students taking part in the program are enrolled now.
