Promoting the idea of international understanding, the United World Colleges Movement has brought together top students and faculty from around the world to exchange ideas, live and grow together. The movement was founded in 1962 to advance the ideals of understanding, peace and co-operation between nations. To date, there are 10 related colleges around the world, hosting more than 2,000 international students. The students are selected by the corresponding National Selection Committees, based on personal merit and commitment to the UWC ideals, and completely regardless of financial ability, race, or religious beliefs.
This year Ukraine has been offered two scholarships, completely covering all the expenses: one - to Italy and one - to Costa Rica (the applicants are not expected to have any conduct of Italian or Spanish - the curriculum at both colleges is held in English). Note: only those students who are currently enrolled in 10th or 11th grade of a Ukrainian high school are eligible to apply! For more details, please, visit the website of the Ukrainian National UWC Selection Committee at http://uwc-ukraine.atspace.com . The application deadline is March 20, 2006. If you have any questions regarding the program, feel free to either post them in our guestbook or contact the members of the Selection Committee directly.
