United World College Of South East Asia Scholarships

UWC (United World Colleges) is a global education movement that makes education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future. UWC offers an International Baccalaureate education to students with a high emphasis placed on international understanding and the sharing of cultures. Set in 18 countries on 4 continents, UWC Colleges deliver a challenging and transformational education to over 9,500 students each year. 

The UWC movement started offering scholarships to Cambodian students since 2008. There are two scholarship programmes for Cambodia:

2-Year UWC Scholarships

UWC colleges offer scholarships for a maximum of two years for Cambodian nationals aged 16 to 18 years old of outstanding personal and academic potential. In the last several years, the national committee has received an average of three scholarships per year. This number may change depending on funding available at each UWC colleges, which relies on donations from alumni and other individuals, trusts, foundations, companies and governments.

The national committee is not able to know in advance which of the UWC colleges will offer scholarships to Cambodia until the offers are made. UWC scholarships for Cambodian students are need-based. It is likely that at least one of the scholarships received is fully funded, although there are partial scholarships in the mix as well. By donating directly to the national committee you can help fund additional UWC scholarships and provide more opportunities for the youth of Cambodia.

5-Year UWCSEA Scholarships 

UWCSEA annually offers full scholarships for a maximum of five years for two Cambodian nationals, aged 13 to 15 years old, of outstanding personal and academic potential. One successful candidate will be placed at the UWCSEA (East) campus and one at the UWCSEA (Dover) campus. Applications are open for both boys and girls. 

The College will meet all educational and accommodation fees, meals, travel expenses to and from Cambodia and a small living allowance for the successful candidates (subject to a review of their family's capability to contribute to their education).

The 5-Year scholarship programme is only available in Cambodia and for Cambodian nationals.
