  • Read more about the 2019 - 2021 UWC scholarships here. 
  • Read more about the UWC selection criteria here and the selection process here.
  • Carefully review and understand the costs for each scholarship offered. Full scholarships cover: tuition, room and board, books, IB exam registration fees, but they do not cover travel costs, Project Week, house deposit, pocket money, visa (if necessary). Partial scholarships cover a % of tuition, room and board, books, IB exam registration fees and they do not cover travel costs, Project Week, house deposit, pocket money, visa (if necessary). Please note that costs vary from college to college and they will be clearly communicated to you if you win the full/ partial scholarship. 
  • If questions, please refer to the FAQ section first here and then feel free to contact us at, we will be happy to answer questions & guide you through the application process.
  • Make sure you understand that you are applying for all of the offered UWC scholarships, and not for a particular scholarship or UWC college - the UWC Selection Committee has the final decision with which college/ type of scholarship to match your application. 
  • You may apply for the UWC scholarships offered to Romania if you have double citizenship but you can apply only via one UWC National Committee - for instance, if you have both Romanian and Canadian citizenship, you must decide with which National Committee you are applying, you may not apply in both Romania and Canada at the same time.
