Why support UWC
UWC is committed to ensuring that as many students as possible have the opportunity to experience a UWC education regardless of national, socioeconomic, cultural, racial or religious background. UWC achieves this through selection based on potential and merit and through the provision of scholarships. To continue this work, UWC relies on donations from alumni and other individuals, trusts, foundations, companies and governments.
Below are four examples of how our scholarship program is breaking down barriers to a world class education for all.
"UWC has a unique role to play in addressing global challenges by demonstrating the power of education to unite diverse groups of people. The young people we select meet others from all over the world, forming a unique global cohort. Together they will learn not only that they can excel in any field they choose, but also that they can become community leaders and help to find solutions to some of the world’s most intractable problems.”
