Our future depends on a world of talented individuals from diverse cultures who share a commitment to international understanding.
The great potential of the Davis United World College Scholars Program is not simply to build and perpetuate an outstanding scholarship program. It is to motivate others, especially in the private sector, to strengthen international understanding through their organizations and their personal philanthropy. It is to foster a deeper commitment to international diversity and programming on American campuses. It is to equip U.S. students, either as Davis UWC Scholars themselves or through their interaction with Davis UWC Scholars, with the skills and attitudes to keep America effectively engaged with the rest of the world.
We embark on the second decade of the Davis United World College Scholars Program with the expectation that our work will advance these important goals.
The Transformative Power of Philanthropy
Though our program is still young, we are making a substantial investment in furthering international understanding through education in the 21st century. In time, Davis UWC Scholars will take their place beside the alumni of such esteemed scholarship programs as Fulbright and Rhodes. We embrace fully the goal of the late Senator J. William Fulbright for the public-sector scholarship program that bears his name: to “bring a little more knowledge, a little more reason, and a little more compassion into world affairs, and thereby to increase the chance that nations will learn at last to live in peace and friendship.”
If you are inclined to invest your own philanthropy in a college or university of your choice, in the program shown here, or in the United World Colleges, we encourage you to do so. Your investment can help change the world. To make a donation or to receive further information, please contact:
