UNHCR and UWC Join Forces for UWC Refugee Initiative

28 September 2017

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency and UWC are co-hosting an event in Brussels to raise awareness of the UWC Refugee Initiative.

UWC is thrilled to be collaborating with UNHCR to make a difference in the lives of refugees. Together, UWC and UNHCR are working to extend access to education for refugees worldwide through the UWC Refugee Initiative. The Initiative aims to provide 100 scholarships per year for refugee students to attend UWC schools and colleges. For more on the UWC Refugee Initiative, please click here
