is the cost of a two year education at Pearson College UWC for each student

In August of each year, Pearson College UWC welcomes up to 200 new and returning students from more than 100 countries around the world. These incredible young people come to learn through study, service and experience, and to live together in a unique cross-cultural setting at our campus on Pedder Bay.

Pearson’s commitment to supporting scholars is strong — today, more than 90% of Pearson students rely on full or partial scholarships to make their enrollment possible.

This is where you come in…

Each year, the College depends on generous contributions from donors to sponsor students. Sometimes a scholarship is fully-funded by one donor, while other scholarships are funded by a group of many supporters.

Regardless of their size, these annual contributions make the Pearson experience available to more scholars. A donation from you can also help:

Provide nutritious meals to fuel student’s minds and bodies during this intense program to ensure they have a healthy learning and living experience.

Fund student community service and wellbeing activities that also develop leadership skills, like being trained as campus medical responders or peer counsellors.

Support the activity program, so that students can be tested in the outdoors on both land and sea, or pursue an interest in the arts.

I would like to thank our donors for giving me this life-changing opportunity. Not only has Pearson changed the way I see myself, but it’s changed the way I see the world around me.

I would like to say a huge thank you. I am so grateful for this life-changing opportunity that has exposed me to new and different perspectives, and has enabled me to be more open-minded and conscious of issues in the world. I have learned how to interact with people, even those that I think differently from. Thank you!

Just a word of “thank you” is not enough for what you did. I want to assure you that I will also help a student in the days to come in the same way you did.
