Dover Scholar Boarding


Every student, regardless of their entry pathway or the UWC school or college which they join, is committed to bringing the UWC mission and values to create a peace and more sustainable future for all.

There are a range of ways to join the UWC movement—as a full or partial scholarship student, or as a fee-paying student. 

Applying for scholarships: UWC National Committees

Scholarships, both full and partial, are available to all UWC schools and colleges. These are allocated to successful applicants via the 150+ UWC national committees around the world, rather than directly by the UWC school or college. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship to UWCSEA or one of the other UWCs, please contact the UWC national committee in your home country. They will advise for which UWCs they have scholarships available to award, and provide details of their annual selection process, which varies by country. 

Students awarded scholarships are selected on promise and potential – as part of the selection process, national committees carry out a financial means assessment. If an application is successful, the scholarship amount will be determined based on the applicants demonstrated need.

Scholarships for Singaporeans

For many years the UWC Singapore national committee has selected Singaporean students to attend the two-year IB Diploma Programme course at UWCs around the world. These unencumbered, two-year scholarships are awarded through an annual selection process which is managed entirely by the UWC Singapore national committee.

More information on applying for a scholarship?

Singapore citizens and PRs

Singaporean citizens and PRs are invited to apply to the UWC scholarship programme through the UWC Singapore national committee.

All other nationalities

Please contact your UWC national committee.

Applying to other UWCs as a fee-paying student

Families can apply via the UWC Global Selection Programme (GSP). Most UWC schools and colleges (except UWC Robert Bosch and UWCSEA) participate in this annual process, which recruits students for the residential boarding IB Diploma Programme:

All potential candidates to UWC Robert Bosch College (Freiburg, Germany) and UWCSEA must apply via the alternative channels, which for UWC RBC is via the UWC national committee scholarship award and in the case of UWCSEA, the school's own holistic admissions process. 

A number of the schools and colleges also enrol students directly into their pre-IB courses as day and/or boarding students, some accepting students as young as 18 months.
