Help Students Like Abdullah

"From 2006 to 2010 were the worst years of our lives," says Abdullah Alshawk '15, Iraq. In his audio story, Abdullah recalls constant bombs and threats. Now Abdullah is at UWC-USA, where he will learn how to become a peacemaker.

You can help students like Abdullah who come from regions of conflict. Philanthropist Shelby Davis has offered to give UWC-USA $1 million to create a scholarship fund for these students if we can raise a matching $1 million in new and increased gifts. Read more about the Davis Challenge.
