The application for the 2017-18 school year is now closed. Applications for the 2018-19 school year will open in the early summer of 2017.
If you thrive on challenge, believe in making a difference, and are ready to work harder than you may have ever worked in your life, the UWC experience might be right for you. The application process is rigorous—we want to know you are serious! Keep in mind:
A full submission includes three recommendation letters. Teachers, counselors, and extracurricular supervisors can submit their recommendations here.
There is no application fee.
50 U.S. citizens and residents who are accepted to a UWC receive full merit scholarships that cover fees, room, and board for the two-year program.
U.S. students may apply only in their sophomore or junior year. You cannot be older than 18 years of age in the year you intend to enroll
Non U.S. students must apply via the national committee in their home country.
If you are accepted as a high school senior, you must still complete the two-year UWC program. Your second year would be considered a “gap” or “fifth” year.
There are 17 UWC schools and colleges available to students in the fall of 2017. When you apply, you can rank your preference of campus, but we can’t guarantee you’ll get your first choice.
- The application deadline for Davis Scholarships (for the 2018/19 academic year) will be in the fall of 2017.
