Inviting applications to The UWC Scholarship Scheme 2013-2015

We are now inviting applications to The UWC Scholarship Scheme 2013-2015. Please send help spread the message to aspired students!

Every year, UWC offers about 60 scholarships to Hong Kong students to give them a chance to experience a challenging and transformative education. UWCs offer a rigorous two-year pre-university residential program that leads to the International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma.

We look for current F.4 or F.5 students (aged 15-17) in Hong Kong who:
• are interested in learning about different cultures
• have a sense of idealism, and care about the world and the environment
• are active in community service and extracurricular activities
• can cope with an academically challenging program

Students are selected purely on merit, and scholarships are awarded based on needs. Scholarships can range from $2,000 to full scholarship which covers tuition, room, board, textbooks and even some pocket money.

UWC scholars can choose to study in Hong Kong or overseas. There are 12 UWCs across five continents, including Li Po Chun United World College of Hong Kong. The other colleges are in the UK, USA, Canada, Italy, Norway, the Netherlands, India, Singapore, Costa Rica, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Swaziland. Each UWC typically comprises between 200 and 300 students from about 70 different countries.
