United World College Scholarships
The United World Colleges (UWC) is a global educational movement bringing together students from over 80 nations to study at one of 12 campuses, each with its own unique character.
The colleges share a common mission – to overcome world conflict by engendering connectedness between all nations.
Established in 1962, the movement is led internationally by Queen Noor of Jordan, with Mr Nelson Mandela as Honorary President. Lord Attenborough is among the United World Colleges eminent patrons.
Students undertaking their final school years at a United World Colleges campus will study for an International Baccalaureate (IB) while contributing to community projects that benefit the local areas.
The Scholarships can be partially or fully funded by United World Colleges Australia and are selected on academic merit, community participation and achievement as well as suitability as ambassadors for Australia.
