Ernest Mugisha, a 22-year-old student at Rwanda Institute for Conservation Agriculture (RICA), is among the 50 nominees shortlisted for the Chegg.org Global Student Prize 2022.
The annual $100,000 award is given to one exceptional student that has made a real impact on learning, the lives of their peers and society.
Chegg is an American education technology company based in Santa Clara, California.
Mugisha was selected from almost 7,000 nominations and applications from 150 countries.
The Varkey Foundation partnered with Chegg.org to launch the annual Global Student Prize last year, a sister award to its $1 million Global Teacher Prize.
