From January to February, B2R Scholars in the gap-year Leadership Academy in Kigali attend B2R University (B2R-U), a 6-week simulation of the US college experience. During B2R-U, Scholars are introduced to a rigorous university workload as well as university practices, such as advising, GPA, a syllabus, course catalogues, time management skills, and learning how to communicate with professors.

B2R-U courses are at university level, with a demanding amount of homework and assignments, including a final exam and/or paper for each class. Our goal is for Scholars to feel college ready, both academically and personally, when they leave for university in the fall.
