If you have been waiting for the right moment to donate, now is your best time because every dollar you contribute will quadruple. This challenge could not have come at a better time. We have only recently learned that some of the expected UWC International scholarship monies are not coming. We have a deep commitment to our 80+ scholars who will be arriving in a few short weeks. This ends July 31st!

Diversity is at the core of UWC Costa Rica educational model. We believe that In order to fulfill our mission we need students from all different socioeconomic backgrounds so that we may defy the socio-economic polarization that rules so many regions of our world. Money and resources to host students that need to be fully or partially funded is our top priority. We strongly believe money should not stop a student to have the opportunity of receiving a world-class education.


75% of our students have either a full or partial scholarship, guaranteeing a variety of socioeconomic classes in our student body that enriches learning for everyone. Our intentionally diverse rich learning environment allows our students to feel safe and supported to discover, question, and explore their own backgrounds and experiences as well as those of others. While working hard for their IB Diploma, they develop empathy, critical thinking, problem solving and leadership abilities.

Long-Term Impact

Once our students graduate, they form part of a network of 65,000 graduates worldwide, among which are outstanding scientists, politicians, entrepreneurs, artists, and highly original agents of change who live the UWC mission in every facet of their live. Supporting United World College Costa Rica is support integration, supporting the training of world leaders, supporting Latin America, supporting youth.
