The Deo Kujirabwindja Memorial Scholarship

The Deo Kujirabwindja Memorial Scholarship is the American Leadership Foundation's main scholarship program, centered on a $10,000 grant awarded to emerging leaders the year that they graduate from high school.

The Deo Kujirabwindja Memorial Scholarship also includes three secondary grants of $3,000 each that are awarded to the finalists who are not chosen to receive the primary $10,000 grant.

Beyond the monetary grants, scholarship recipients are welcomed into an ongoing mentoring program to connect them with further opportunities throughout their lives. This mentoring support is based on individual desires and needs, and can range from help finding internship and job opportunities, introductions to leaders within a given career field, to logistical support with moving and career counseling.

Applications for the graduating class of 2022 are now closed. Students who submitted essays will receive updates about the process via email.
