Open A Door Scholar

Applications for 2016 are open at Open A Door Foundation!

We are looking for young Rwandan women interested in applying for scholarships to US colleges and universities, and need guidance in how to apply.

Women aged 18-23 who are selected will attend an immersive Internet course from January 2016 through June 2016 to prepare them for US college entrance exams. Those who perform well on the exams are then matched with a team of women in the United States who mentor them in the process of applying for scholarships at US colleges and universities in the spring.

Open A Door applications are due Sunday, November 8, 2015 at midnight, Kigali time.

Hello Bbylenga!

Thanks for sharing this amazing opportunity! I might suggest that you post this to the World Pulse Resource Exchange (, and to some of the community groups . Perhaps the Economic Empowerment or Leadership groups would be a good place to start? You can find all the groups listed here, and can click to join any you are interested in. I think this will help spread the word about this incredible opportunity even more widely!

You might also consider connecting directly with World Pulse members from Rwanda. In the member directory, you can filter members by their country and connect directly via private messages.

Thanks for sharing this resource!
