Scholarships and Places
At all United World Colleges, it is our basic philosophy to select students purely on merit and their financial background is not a hindrance for them to be selected. Therefore, the UWC Scholarship Scheme provides scholarships and fee remission to selected students according to their financial need on a means-tested basis.
Scholarships range from HK$500 per year up to the amount of the full scholarship. A full scholarship to attend a UWC covers tuition, textbooks and boarding. Scholarships do not cover air fare, travel expenses, pocket money and other incidental expenses.
