UWC Lebanon Applications 2020 - High School Scholarship Program

UWC Lebanon has opened its annual applications and is searching for bright 16-17-year-olds who want to make a difference in the world. The Lebanese National Committee for United World College is one of 156 national committees in countries around the world dedicated to ensuring that every year, a few exceptional high school students from their country get the opportunity to attend one of the eighteen United World Colleges for their two final years of high school on full scholarships.

These students sign up for the academically rigorous International Baccalaureate and an extra-curricular program promoting personal challenge and individual responsibility within UWC’s unique multi-cultural environment. 80% of selected students are on a full or partial scholarship. They then graduate from UWC with a wide range of university scholarship and career opportunities as well as access to a global network of alumni connections. 50% come back to Lebanon to give back to their country and use what they learned at UWC.
