History of UWC Belize

The UWC movement began in 2001 in Belize.  For the first six years students were offered scholarships to the Venezuela school which was a more agriculture oriented program while the other UWC schools and colleges were offing the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.  In 2006 for the first time Belize was offered two scholarships for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, one for Canada and one for Costa Rica.

Since that time Belize have received offer/s every year for students to attend one of the 17 UWC schools and colleges throughout the world.  We have proudly nominated students for these offers to attend schools in Netherlands, Hong Kong, South Wales, Singapore and most recently USA, and Africa.

We promote the UWC movement in Belize through our National Committee which is composed of volunteers. Support Us by volunteering.
