Horizon-UWC Scholarship Program
The Horizon Foundation, founded in 2004 by Patrick and Kirkland Smulders, provides scholarships for deserving students from the Middle East and Asia. After supporting scholars at four UWC colleges individually, in 2016 the Horizon Foundation decided to expand the partnership and together with UWC International started a Horizon-UWC Scholarship Program targeting refugee students, young people from conflict zones and other students coming from underprivileged and marginalised backgrounds. So far, Horizon has supported 91 Horizon-UWC scholars over multiple years.
