In 2019 the Pestalozzi International Foundation (PIF) evolved its long-standing scholarship programme into a new partnership with United World Collages (UWC) and together started the Pestalozzi-UWC Scholarship Programme, focusing on students from underprivileged backgrounds who would not have the opportunity to complete their education without scholarship support. As a funding partner, Pestalozzi provides the financial support for the selected students to study the 2-year International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. The first five Pestalozzi-UWC Scholars entered UWC Atlantic in August 2019.
The majority of our funding supports our scholarship programme. We do not accept unsolicited applications for this programme, and work with a partner organisation, currently United World Colleges, who identify individuals for support.
