The United World College (UWC) Botswana National Committee is charged with the exciting and challenging responsibility of selecting UWC scholars from a pool of deserving and promising Batswana candidates. We are committed to the task of selecting deserving candidates regardless of financial need and to giving back to our nation through service. As such, not only do we focus our efforts on fundraising for scholarships, it is our mission to seek out and engage in youth focused community service initiatives in Botswana.
“The striking thing about UWC is that they embrace the entire world across all divides of race, history, culture, wealth, religion, economic status and political belief: they are unique and they are conscious of their responsibilities.”
To date, there are over 80 Batswana UWC alumni, many of whom have since attended prestigious universities around the world. Most of Botswana’s UWC alumni have been witnessed to return to Botswana and are active members of society as demonstrated by their assumption of various leadership roles. Even in their various professions, UWC alumni endeavour to contribute to various NGO and community development projects in line with our national Vision 2016 ideals as a result of their continued adherence to the UWC values.
