Several universities from the US, including Stanford, Duke, Arizona State University, Michigan State University, and University of California-Berkeley, recently visited Rwanda for the first time. These universities are a part of MasterCard Foundation’s efforts to recruit top African students to compete for university scholarships, with the requirement that they return to Africa upon completion of their studies. Bridge2Rwanda was significantly involved in planning their trip to Rwanda, helping to arrange for the school representatives to visit high schools in Rwanda, hosting a college fair at the US Embassy, and even planning a reception at the US Ambassador’s residence. Our B2R Scholars were thrilled to visit with representatives from all of these great universities. Pictured above, the students visit with the representative from Duke University.
