SELECTION

HOW MUCH DOES A PEARSON COLLEGE EDUCATION COST?

All candidates are evaluated on their merit — not on their ability to pay.

Successful candidates will have showcased their leadership, promise and potential to be change makers.

No candidate of merit will be turned away due to financial reasons.

All shortlisted candidates are asked to declare their UWC preferences.

In order to keep our scholarship program as generous as possible and offer this transformational education to young leaders from diverse backgrounds, candidates being considered will undergo means testing to determine the level of scholarship support available to each individual.

Candidates’ families are therefore asked to complete a means test. This financial assessment is run by an independent third party and is kept entirely separate from the selection panel.

Candidates being considered for UWC schools outside of Canada will also undergo the means testing process to determine the places for which they will best qualify.
