UTB Scholarship Program

We want high quality students to graduate with a degree program from the University of Tourism, Technology and Business Studies (UTB), but we know that tuition fees and living costs can sometimes be a struggle, even more so during the current Covid-19 situation.

Having in mind of the above situation and taking into consideration the vision of the university of Tourism, Technology and Business Studies, UTB management had decided to offer scholarship to the best and brightest students from Rwanda and other nationalities every year. This is in the line of UTB of becoming a center of excellence in the region and its commitment for the service to the community. Below are two categories of scholarship, based on the academic merit:

  • National Achievers Merit (NAM) Scholarship
