Exceptional leaders and change-makers can come from anywhere. Environmental constraints should not prevent the next great African leader from gaining the tools, skillsets and networks to bring positive change and create impact. 

The ALU Refugee Scholarship is a unique program enabling access to higher education for refugee students with exceptional entrepreneurial drive, demonstrated leadership potential, and excellent academic track record.  

Applicants must be registered and/or officially recognized refugees who have no other means of support for University or College studies.  

We aim to empower 50 resilient, driven, innovative, creative, mission-driven refugee students to join us on our Rwanda and Mauritius campuses as part of the ALU Refugee Scholarship.
