Each year as the United Nations observes the International Day of Peace, a group of St. Lawrence University students organizes events and leads efforts on campus to showcase what is possible when people come together to learn, take action, and make a difference. These students are the University’s Davis United World College (UWC) Scholars.
Davis UWC Scholars graduate from one of 18 UWC schools on four continents and then matriculate at selected U.S. colleges or universities like St. Lawrence. The UWC experience challenges them academically and personally, expands their horizons exponentially, and shows them how to build understanding from diversity. The Program provides financial support for their undergraduate educations through institutional grants that support need-based scholarships for Davis UWC Scholars.ects, I knew it would be a good place for me.”
