Topic: Study Abroad Scholarships – United World College and More

United World Colleges (UWC) is an education movement comprising 12 international schools and colleges, national committees in more than 140 countries, and a series of short educational programs –  the most common being a two-year International Baccalaureate program. Students are selected from around the globe based on their merit and potential.

Every year, since 2006, between 2 to 4 Cambodians, aged 16 to 18 are selected to study in one of twelve countries: Canada, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Norway, Singapore, Swaziland, the United States, the United Kingdom, Costa Rica, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the Netherlands. Up until today, 34 Cambodians have become a part of the UWC network. After UWC, many Cambodian UWCers earned another scholarship to pursue a 4-year Bachelor Degree of their interest in the United States.

In this information session, the presenter will introduce you to the UWC scholarship opportunities by discussing the qualifications and selection processes. If you’re older than 18 years old, you will also find this presentation useful as the presenter will also speak about scholarship opportunities for university students.
