About the Dallaire Scholarship
The Dallaire Award Fund continues to advance the principle that has guided Lewis & Clark’s innovative programs in international education for more than 40 years: global understanding is rooted in relationships, and relationships are built day by day and person to person. Every academic year, the Dallaire Scholarship supports a student from Rwanda to come to Lewis & Clark and study English in the Academic English Studies program.
About Zimbabwe Artists Project:
Zimbabwe Artists Project has its roots at Lewis and Clark. Dick Adams, a sociology professor, led students to Zimbabwe in 1994, 1997 and 1999, on programs focused on gender and social change. In 1997, artists from Weya, who were host mothers/sisters for the students, asked him to find a market for their art in the U.S. He founded Zimbabwe Artists Project in 1999 as a non-profit organization.
