Applications are open for the Rwanda program


Are you an ambitious and community driven student?

Partner with us for a Leadership Loan to attend and succeed in university. Leadership Loans cover tuition, books, transportation & welcome students into a supportive family of friends.

How does the Leadership Loan work?

The Leadership Loan is a full loan, but upon graduation, a significant portion of your loan will be forgiven, based on your current economic situation. Students are required to reinvest the remaining portion of their loan back into the program for a new student from their community.


  • We support students with economic or other hardship.
  • Students must commit to the Community Impact Program focused on service, leadership & reinvestment for a new student.
  • Student must be 25 years of age or younger at the time of application.
  • Undergraduate students in all fields of study are encouraged to apply, but we typically select students in the fields of Engineering, Science, Technology, Law, Business, Medicine, and similar fields.

We are so excited to partner with you in this opportunity!
