Rwanda Presidential Scholars Program

About the Hendrix Consortium

Hendrix College leads a consortium of 18 U.S. colleges and universities that work with the Rwandan government to provide four year, undergraduate scholarships to a select group of Rwanda’s best and brightest students. Hendrix serves as project coordinator for the consortium and is principally responsible for obtaining scholarship commitments, overseeing the student selection process, and administering the financial aspects of the program. The consortium is currently the largest provider of scholarships to the Rwanda Ministry of Education, with 125 students enrolled in undergraduate studies as of the fall semester 2011. The first four participants graduated from Hendrix in May 2011.
