United World College Scholarships

United World Colleges (UWC) is a global educational movement that brings together students from over 80 nations to live together and study at one of 17 campuses around the world.

The colleges share a common mission: to make education a force for peace and sustainability by fostering understanding and cooperation among tomorrow's citizens and leaders.

Students undertaking their final school years at a UWC campus will study for a two year, pre university International Baccalaureate (IB) while contributing to community projects that benefit the local areas.

This year, UWC Australia will offer a mix of full and partial scholarships and unfunded places for students to study at a United World College. Candidates are selected on a broad range of criteria including academic merit, community involvement and suitability as ambassadors for Australia.
