The UWC movement seeks outstanding students who want to make meaningful change for a better world, regardless of their socio-economic, religious, national, ethnic or cultural background.

Fees and Scholarships

Everyone has the right to a quality education, that’s why we strive to offer one of the most comprehensive scholarship programmes in the world. If you are interested in attending UWC Atlantic, you should apply regardless of your financial circumstances: many students selected by our National Committees are awarded full or partial scholarships. National Committees will carry out a means-test to determine the level of financial help needed. You can find more details on fees and scholarships here.
