Presidential Scholars — At the Clinton Library & School in Little Rock this past week, Tim Cloyd, David Knight, Dabbs Cavin and Hendrix College hosted an impressive gathering of 21 colleges and universities to celebrate and promote the Rwanda Presidential Scholars Program. Rwanda Ambassador to the US, James Kimonyo, Carol Rugege, Rwanda’s Education Officer at their US embassy and the new head of SFAR, Emma Rubagumya also attended. It was very encouraging with many of the new schools expressing amazement at the success of the program and an enthusiastic desire to join the consortium to offer more scholarships to Rwandan students. We are optimistic that over the next few years, the program will continue to grow without increasing the financial burden on the Rwandan government.
