The UNHCR-United World Colleges Cooperation Agreement is aimed at providing a comprehensive framework for the safe and secure access of 100 refugees and Internally Displaced Persons to UWC secondary education schools and colleges through a comprehensive scholarship programme during the next three years, in addition to the 50 refugees currently accepted annually. UNHCR will also help UWC develop its refugee programmes by providing non-financial support to UWC’s Refugee Initiative, including authoritative guidance on refugee policy, technical advice, and information on complementary pathways to protection and solutions for refugee and IDP scholars, seeking to study at UWC schools. UNHCR will also support UWC in promoting this initiative among national and local stakeholders as well as to provide guidance to refugee and internally displaced communities towards UWC selections.
