Cubaka Mutayongwa Fellowship (Louisville and Lexington)
KRM is now accepting applicants for the new Cubaka Mutayongwa Fellowship, named for a young, emerging leader in Lexington who dedicated his short life to making our community a better place. This Fellowship is intended specifically as an opportunity for Black Americans, immigrants or refugees or their children, Native Americans, or other underrepresented groups in nonprofit leadership. The Fellowship will develop emerging leaders between 18 and 24 years of age.
Cubaka Nehemia Mutayongwa was a young leader, volunteer, community activist, public speaker, soccer player, interpreter, entrepreneur, student, teacher, mentor, and friend to many in the Lexington community, where he was resettled by KRM as a refugee with this family as a teenager in 2012. Cubaka tragically died on July 4, 2020; his last act before dying was to help save someone else’s life. Learn more about Cubaka’s legacy and the qualities he was known for here and here.
