Are you passionate about an issue somewhere in the world where you want to make a difference, but you don't have the money to make it happen?
2022 Awards List
UWC students have had the difficult task to come up with projects to make a difference in a Covid-safe manner. It was important this year that any project submitted, could be delivered without putting the student or anyone else affected by their project at risk. UWC students will be making a difference in Africa, Asia, Americas, Middle East and Europe throughout 2022 and 2023. The total value of grants awarded for this year is $23,000.
We will look forward to receiving reports from UWC projects leaders on how their projects were delivered. We love to hear from the students about their projects with photos and videos and a short report where they highlight to us how they made a difference. This helps motivate future students to apply to make a difference. We wish you well!
We could not provide this award scheme without the help of the local UWC school/college coordinators who promote the award scheme and provide much needed guidance and support for students in preparing their application.
Hopefully 2023 UWC graduating students will be inspired by the class of 2022 who will be making a difference and as Jill Longson (AC81) says, “live the UWC mission!”
