UWC – Davis Scholars

Confused about how to finance your education abroad? Here are details regarding the UWC Davis Scholarships. Find out all that you need to know about eligibility, scholarship limits, deadlines, and more.

In 2000, they launched a scholarship program that provided grants to selected American colleges and universities to support United World College graduates who matriculated at these schools. The first schools in the pilot group were Colby College, College of the Atlantic, Middlebury College, Princeton University and Wellesley College.

Davis offered to provide need-based scholarships for every UWC graduate who gained acceptance and then matriculated at these pilot schools, regardless of national origin or UWC attended. This remains the case for these five inaugural schools.

Beginning with the fall 2004 student matriculation, the Davis United World College Scholars Program greatly expanded to over 90 American colleges and universities. Davis philanthropy partners with these schools to meet the financial needs of their scholars throughout their four-year undergraduate degree programs.

The program is built on two assumptions: 1) that promising future leaders from a broad range of cultures should be afforded greater educational opportunities and serve to accelerate global networking; 2) that these educational opportunities take place at leading U.S. colleges and universities, in the belief that American schools will become more effective learning communities by becoming more internationally diverse and globally engaged.
