Hendrix College was selected to receive the Institute of International Education (IIE)’s 2012 Andrew Heiskell Award for International Partnerships for its leadership role in the development of the Rwanda Presidential Scholars Program.

Hendrix will also be featured by the IIENetwork as a “best practice” in international education. 

“I’m delighted that we have been recognized for our leadership role in this program, which has contributed significantly to internationalizing the participating campuses, providing us all with first-rate students from Rwanda who teach us about their culture as they pursue their academic subjects and learn about American culture,” said Dr. Robert L. Entzminger, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost of the college.

“It has also created exciting opportunities for our American students to pursue internship and research projects in Rwanda, and it has allowed us to contribute to the rebuilding of this African nation.”
