Scholarships and fees

A Davis Scholarship is a $25,000 merit-based scholarship that can be applied to tuition at UWC-USA or one of the 17 other UWCs around the world. Families that demonstrate need are eligible for additional funding that can cover all or most of the costs associated with a UWC education.

The application period for Davis Scholarships is now open and will run through October 31, 2019 for admission in August 2020. For this round:

  • Davis Scholarship applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States.
  • Students must be in grade 10 or 11 (or the equivalent) to apply. Students who will complete their final year of high school in the 2019-2020 school year are ineligible to apply.

All others interested in applying to attend UWC-USA or any other UWC school or college must apply through their national committees.

Please contact our admissions staff if you have questions about eligibility:

Message from John Carpenter, Director of Admissions at UWC-USA:
Just a reminder that we are currently accepting applications from high school sophomores and juniors to attend UWC, and we want you to know that we’ve extended the deadline to October 31. That may be Halloween, but there’s nothing scary about applying to UWC!
Anyway, this is just a reminder to complete your applications by the end of October. If you have questions, please reach out to us at or you can also write to me directly at  We’re looking forward to reading your applications.
