Why Give

The UWC is no longer able to survive on traditional sources of funding. The costs associated with attending a UWC are as follows (these are estimates):

Full Scholarship ($40,000 per student)

A full scholarship covers the entire two year attendance of one UWC scholar. In supporting a scholarship, you will be responsible for giving a young Sierra Leonean an outstanding educational opportunity.

Partial Scholarship ($6,000 - 15,000 per student)

Some colleges are able to provide partial assistance to qualified students to attend their college. By providing a partial scholarship for a Sierra Leonean student, you will be affording them an outstanding educational opportunity.

Travel Costs ($3,000 per student)

The cost of travelling to and from most of the UWC’s is high. We welcome any contributions to assist students to get to their respective UWC’s and for educational trips they will need to make during their time at UWC.

Subsistence Allowance ($500 per student)

Assist deserving students to cover these expenses for the duration of their stay at a UWC or make a contribution towards a student's expenses.
