UWC-USA is a training ground for change-makers. Students enter as idealists and graduate well-equipped to succeed and make lasting, positive change. Those who’ve experienced it will tell you it transformed them. Those who support it philanthropically will tell you about the satisfaction of knowing they helped develop the kind of thoughtful, compassionate leaders the world truly needs.

Nearly all UWC-USA students receive scholarships. Fees paid by national committees account for only 25% of the school’s operating budget, and UWC-USA receives no government funding. Private philanthropy is the school’s most important source of funding.

In addition to financial contributions, there are many ways to support the school. Check out our volunteer opportunities to see how to use your talent and time to benefit UWC-USA.
