What we do
The UWC Belize National Committee promotes the mission and values of the UWC movement in Belize. Every year Belize receives at least one offer for either a partial, full funded or spot only at one of the 17 UWC schools and colleges worldwide. Once we receive our offer/s the committee works diligently to advertise these opportunities to high schools throughout Belize with the intention of reaching a diverse group of students to apply for the spot/s.
The offer/s are for students to take this wonderful opportunity to further their education through the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma program. The IB aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
At the UWC schools, students study the IB which is a two year diploma program equivalent to Belize's 6Th form or pre-university. Upon receiving an IB Diploma, a student is eligible to apply for a Bachelor's education around the world. It also qualifies you to apply for the Shelby Davis Foundation Scholarship www.davisuwcscholars.org/partners which is the opportunity for a four year Bachelor's Degree in the US from over 90 schools and colleges.
