Program areas at B2R

For the first 16 months of the B2R Scholars Program, the Scholars immerse themselves in B2R's rigorous Leadership Academy located at the B2R Training Center on the campus of the University of Rwanda - College of Business and Economics in Kigali. The Scholars make a full-time commitment to the Leadership Academy without any guarantee they will be awarded a university scholarship. In addition, they sign a written commitment that if they are awarded an international scholarship they will return to work in Africa after their university graduation.

Borrowed Talent Members are reimbursed for direct expenses associated with their travel to Rwanda to work on specific projects pertaining to the organizations mission. RW Ministries provide direct support to primary and secondary schools in Rwanda primarily for orphans and financially disadvantaged students as well as expenses associated with the Rwandan students attending universities in Rwanda.

The B2R Scholars Program was launched in 2011 at the request of the Rwandan government to increase the number of students earning full scholarships to attend international universities outside of Rwanda. During their four years studying abroad, B2R Scholars are provided the following support network: Support coordinators to monitor their progress and well-being while they are abroad, Volunteer U.S. host families to welcome them to the US and become their home away from home, especially during holiday breaks, Financial sponsors to cover essential student expenses not covered by their university scholarships which includes winter clothes, laptops, cellphones, health insurance, books, dormitory supplies, small living stipends and airfare to return home for summer internships.
