100 Scholarships to Educate Future Rwandan Leaders

Commitment by

Republic of Rwanda

In 2013, the Government of Rwanda and Bridge2Rwanda committed to educate a generation of future Rwandan leaders by preparing and supporting 100 Rwandan students to access full scholarships to international universities over the next three years. For this commitment, the Ministry of Education and Bridge2Rwanda will expand Bridge2Rwanda's highly successful Scholars program which finds the best high school graduates in the country, prepares them to succeed at highly selective U.S. universities and then helps the students apply to universities that can give them full scholarships. By connecting Rwanda's best students to world-class universities, one-hundred or more highly educated future leaders will return ready to contribute to Rwanda's prosperity and development.
