The Rwanda Institute for Conservation Agriculture, or RICA, is an institute of higher learning located in Bugesera District, Eastern Province. Like other institutions, students who meet certain academic requirements apply and go through an evaluation process that includes an interview; we also test for English-language proficiency. All accepted students receive a full scholarship plus room and board to attend, and all live on campus. Each class is between 80 and 84 students, with an equal number of women and men. Students graduate with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Conservation Agriculture.
