Scholarships and funding

Nomination of candidates and financial support

Shortlisted candidates are nominated for a particular UWC college. As a general rule, colleges admit candidates based on the Selection Committees’ recommendations. However, each college reserves the right to make the final decision concerning each individual candidate.

Upon being nominated for a college and confirming their intention to enroll, those candidates applying for educational scholarships will receive a financial assessment form. Together with the completed form, candidates’ parents must submit paperwork verifying household income.

The Financial Evaluation Committee shall review the submitted paperwork and determine the scholarship amount available to the candidate.

As scholarship funds are limited, the need-based system ensures that scholarships are provided to those candidates who truly need them.

Scholarship sources

Scholarships (grants) are funded by UWC colleges, independent donors and foundations that support education of the Russian students in UWC colleges.
