Scholarships to UWC

Scholarships, both full and partial, are available to all 18 of the 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. So, if you are interested in applying for a scholarship to UWCSEA or one of the other UWCs, please contact your home country UWC national committee. They will advise for which UWCs they have scholarships available to award, and provide details of their annual selection process. This varies from country to country.

A complete list of these committees and more information can be found here.

Scholarships for Singaporeans

As part of our commitment to UWC, UWCSEA has for many years funded three scholarships for Singaporeans to attend the two-year IB Diploma course at three of the other UWCs around the world. Currently, Singaporean students study in Norway, the US and Trieste in Italy on these unencumbered, two-year scholarships which include tuition and board. These scholarships are awarded by the UWC Singapore national committee via an annual selection process.

Singaporean citizens and PR's are invited to apply to the UWC Singapore national committee directly - click here for details.

Applying to other UWCs as a fee-paying student

Students who wish to join many of the other UWCs can apply via the UWC Global Selection Programme (GSP), which is coordinated by the UWC International office. Some 15 UWCs (see note below) participate in this annual process, which recruits students for the residential boarding IB Diploma Programme:

Note: UWC Robert Bosch College (Freiburg, Germany) and UWCSEA (Singapore) are not part of the GSP student recruitment process.
