Rwanda Presidential Scholars Program

Thank You

Rwandan students arrive at their home universities and colleges prepared for their freshman year thanks to host families living in and around Little Rock, Arkansas. All students are placed with a host family for the summer while they attend language training language training at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s English as a Second Language summer program. We would not be able to afford the summer program without the support in terms of room and board provided by generous host families. These wonderful families also provide intensive cultural training. This experience is enriched through the efforts of International Friendship Outreach, Fellowship Bible Church and St. Andrew’s Church.

Our students are kept healthy with the combined efforts of UALR’s health clinic and local doctors and dentists who offer care at reduced prices or for free.

It is no wonder that even though RPS students attend colleges and universities across the South, most of them consider Arkansas to be their “home away from home”.
