Deadline: 9 December 2019
The U.S. Embassy in Rwanda is seeking applications on 2020 EducationUSA Scholars Program (ESP).
The mission is to assist their Scholars in negotiating the admissions process in U.S. colleges and universities to better their academic futures, with the goal of producing highly skilled and widely educated leaders to build tomorrow’s Rwanda.
The Education USA Advising Center works with students through regularly scheduled training sessions to assist them throughout the application process to secure admission and financial aid from universities in the United States. They expect a sincere commitment from the students to give back their energy and time to the program and to their communities.
They do not limit the program geographically; however, students must be able to reach their offices in Kigali as required for full participation. ESP students will work with the EducationUSA Adviser in 2020 to try and secure admission and financial aid to begin classes at U.S. colleges and universities for the Fall 2021 school term.
- The EducationUSA office at the Public Affairs Section of the United States Embassy – Kigali, seeks to identify and recruit secondary school graduates who scored 75% and above in Senior 4, Senior 5, and Senior 6 to join the 2020 EducationUSA Scholars Program (ESP).
- Only students who will graduate from secondary schools in November 2019 and those who graduated in 2018 are eligible to apply.
- Entrance into this program does not guarantee admission or financial aid to study in the U.S. candidates who completed senior 6 in 2017 and years prior are not eligible to apply.
