  • Shelby Davis: “How UWC Has Made Me a Better Me”

    Published 06/04/18

    Shelby Davis is UWC’s greatest philanthropic supporter. Over the course of the last two decades, Shelby has invested in the UWC movement and its students through initiatives including the Davis-UWC IMPACT Challenge and, most recently, the Davis-UWC Dare to Dream Programme, which will allow 100 new students each year for the next 20 years to attend UWC - a gift worth $100 million USD. Shelby Davis has also given thousands of UWC alumni the opportunity to continue their education at the post-secondary level, through the world’s largest international scholarship programme for undergraduates in the world: the Davis United World College Scholars Program

    The Davis UWC Scholars Program recently published its 2018 Annual Report, which can be accessed here. The Report gives an impressive overview of the diverse group of UWC students who have benefitted this academic year from scholarships to one of over 90 US colleges and universities for their post-secondary education. The Report also includes a message from Shelby Davis, adapted from remarks he delivered at the opening ceremonies for UWC ISAK Japan in September 2017. In the text, duplicated below, Shelby sets out how UWC has “made him better”. 

    The UWC movement thanks Shelby Davis for his continued commitment to the UWC mission to make education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future. There is no question that Shelby, with his immense generosity, commitment and faith in the UWC movement, has made UWC better as well.
