Davis United World College Scholars


Worldwide Impact

The Davis United World College Scholars Program is the world’s largest, privately funded, international scholarship program—supporting more than 3,800 undergraduates from 165 nations.

The program was launched in 2000, providing grants to selected American colleges and universities (off-shore campuses and affiliates are ineligible) to support United World College graduates who matriculated at these schools. The first schools in the pilot group were Colby College, College of the Atlantic, Middlebury College, Princeton University, and Wellesley College.

Over its lifetime, the Davis UWC Scholars Program has greatly expanded beyond its original pilot colleges and universities and now includes the institutions below.
