The 2011 Bridge2Rwanda Scholars have landed in the USA! The students are representing Rwanda at seven schools across the US. Of the 10 that arrived this summer, four are attending Abilene Christian University and the others are spread across the country at the University of Pennsylvania, Haverford College, Northwestern University, Grinnell College, the University of Arkansas – Fort Smith, and the US Coast Guard Academy. We couldn’t be more proud of these incredible students and we are excited to follow their journeys alongside of you over the next four years. Stay tuned!
