We are in this together!

Dear Families and Friends,

We appreciate all of your help during this last push for the matching donation campaign whose funds will go directly to supporting our incoming class of 2020. Because of the recent donations, we may actually reach our goal of $20,000! 

But we are not there just yet.

REMEMBER RIGHT NOW YOUR DONATION OF $1 = $4 !! 
 
If you missed it, right now we have two major donors who will not only match every dollar you donate but quadruple it. 

A Costa Rican family has generously offered a $20,0000 matching challenge grant, on top of the Shelby Davis Challenge Grant. 
 
This challenge could not have come at a better time.  

As previously mentioned, we recently learned that some of the expected UWC International scholarship monies are not coming.  We have a deep commitment to these students coming from Pakistan, Syria, Yemen, the Congo, and Colombia who will be arriving in the upcoming weeks.
 
Please help us take advantage of this exciting opportunity!

This is a small investment for these students’ future and it will make a huge difference.  Many thanks for helping this next generation!

With much gratitude,

Susan and Mauricio

Dear donor,

105 students have been selected for the 2018-2019 year for the first time achieving the full capacity of the existing campus. 

Thanks to your support, our Scholarhip Program this year increased the number of fully funded students to 42%, of our coming first years. A balanced mix of socioeconomic representation is fundamental to our programms.

We aim to have all sorts of diversity at our school, and socioecnomic diversity is definitely very important for us!

We still have a long way to go to reach our goal, so we need you help! Please help us to fund more students!

 

Have a great day and donate Today to our Scholarship Fund!

Report 2. Do not Let 5k Stop Them

 You did not let $5000 Stop Them from their dream to come to UWC Costa Rica!

 Thanks to you and your support to the success of this campaign! We are welcoming 13 students instead of 10!

 Please keep on helping us, the campaign closes on July 31st. We aim to provide plane tickets too!

 Through this campaign UWC Costa Rica is welcoming 13 students on full scholarship, tuition, room and board are covered by the college, and personal stipendium for each student is covered by the generosity of more than 250 donors from all over the world.

The UWC Movement admissions process requires a strong collaborative work with the more than 150 National Committees distributed around the world. These committees work very hard to find the students that fill the requirements and profile to become a global leader, trained to promote peace. It is a very competitive process only about 10% of applicants are selected.

 You are awesome! Your contribution to the cause made this possible.

 The final selection process defined 13 students, 3 from Costa Rica, 1 from Ecuador, 1 from Venezuela, 1 from Barbados, 1 from Bolivia, 1 from Bangladesh, 1 from Yemen, 1 from Liberia, 1 from Kosovo, 1 from China, 1 from Macedonia.

The next time we will share with you their arrival to the school. Our students profile and a thank you letter/video from them!

 

Thank you again for making this possible,
