At all UWC schools and colleges, it is our basic philosophy to select students purely on merit and their financial background is not a hindrance for them to be selected. Therefore, the UWC Scholarship Scheme provides scholarships and fee remission to selected students according to their financial need on a means-tested basis.
A range of scholarships amounts are given according to need up to a full scholarship. A full scholarship to attend a UWC covers tuition, textbooks and accommodation fees. Scholarships do not cover air fare, travel expenses, pocket money and other incidental expenses.
Scholarships and Places available for the term 2020-2022:
