BIANCA VETTER FOUNDATION
BVF-UWC Scholarship Programme
The Bianca Vetter Foundation works at home and abroad, wherever help is needed, and supports established organisations by funding their promising projects. The foundation focuses on partnerships and highlights sustainability as one of their principles for working with established organisations.
The BVF-UWC Scholarship programme will provide scholarships for four refugee students from 2018-2021 to study at UWC as part of the UWC Refugee Initiative. The lack of access to education is a major problem for young refugees and persecuted persons. The school drop-out rate is 5 times higher than normal for refugees and with the scholarship programme we hope to provide opportunities for success.
