The United World College Iraqi National Committee was formed to select Iraqi students and raise scholarships to the various United World Colleges Worldwide.
The National Committee conducted selections this year and selected 17 students. Some of these students are refugees and displaced people. Scholarship funds have been found for all 17 students, however we are still short of funds to buy tickets, winter clothes and all the other odds and ends that students (16-18) need in a new country. Several selected scholars have been affected by war and we count on you to help us out.
This page is primarily for people and alumni (and family and friends) familiar with the United World Colleges, so if you have come across it randomly and have more questions please email us. Those familiar with the United World Colleges will understand the exact need for this appeal. You can also visit our Facebook page for more information UWC Iraq كليات العالم المتحد العراق
Glocal Cities is helping us.
Associazione Glocal Cities is helping in the fundraising process for the UWC Iraq National Committee, as it is founded and operated by UWC alumni as we expect most donations from Italy given our networks.
Here is Fadil, from Babil, one of the 17 iraqi students selected in 2018 for a UWC. He is now first year International Baccalaureate (IB) in Germany. For 2019, we want to give this opportunity to more students, to more dreamers of a better world. Support us.
