Our People

UWCSEA Scholarships: Uniting People, Nations, and Cultures

UWCSEA Scholarships offer a UWC education to young people who otherwise might not have the opportunity to attend the College. With your support for the scholarship programme, we can enrich the learning experience for all students, while providing to scholars the values-driven, collaborative education that sets UWC apart. Together, we can help our scholars reach their true potential while empowering the future leaders and changemakers the world needs.

Our scholars come from a wide range of backgrounds and often experience challenging life circumstances. Several young scholars each year are internally displaced people, forced to flee their homes in the months or years prior to joining the College, resulting in disruption to their educational journeys. 

For a scholar, as for all our students, a UWCSEA educational experience opens doors to  growth and possibility—academically, personally, professionally and socially. For the College, the scholars bring a wealth of experience, expertise and perspectives that support the learning and growth of the whole community.

The time a scholar spends at UWCSEA can open many doors and as scholars approach graduation they work with our exceptional UWCSEA university advisors to explore post-UWCSEA pathways. For some students this may include a gap year to give back to their communities, for others this may be a route straight to College or University. 

A unique feature of the Scholarship Programme is that all recipients of a UWCSEA Scholarship are eligible for higher education scholarships to a wide range of US universities through the Shelby Davis Scholarship Programme. This programme seeks to amplify support for the UWCSEA Scholarship Programme and provide pathways to continued success. 

Hear from our scholars

UWCSEA Scholar Poliane

The diverse UWCSEA community gives me the opportunity to talk with people from the entire
globe and reflect on how complex our world is. Now I know more about what is happening in
different parts of the planet and why these things are happening in those areas, with different
points of view and thinking. Here I can develop myself more, not just as a student, but as a person
as well. I was already an empathic person and a critical thinker before coming to UWCSEA, but
these characteristics are becoming stronger at UWCSEA as the learning never stops.

– Poliane ’23, Scholar from Brazil

UWCSEA Scholar Thao

The UWCSEA community is a place where one is able to freely explore a range of interests,
and where support is established as a norm. This motivates me to explore myself, challenge
my limits, and play a part in building a future and society that facilitates freedom of learning
and cooperation. The concept of freedom motivates me, whether it is intellectual, financial or
mental freedom. I applied to UWC with that as my motivation, to go out into the world, break
boundaries, learn and unlearn. I was very glad for the UWC scholarship which allows me the
financial support to be able to explore and learn in this way.

– Thao ’23, Scholar from Vietnam
