What we do
The primary functions performed by the UWC Malawi National Committee are:
UWC Malawi acts as the liaison for the UWC International Organization in the Malawi. In this regard, we communicate with the UWC IO and individual schools and colleges to secure placements and scholarships for Malawian students at UWCs. While we usually accept full scholarship offers from UWCs, we have raised funds and sent students who were not fully covered.
UWC Malawi conducts a number of activities throughout the year to promote UWCs and the UWC scholarship opportunity. Our information dissemination and publicity efforts are mostly targeted towards students who have completed form 4 and their parents. Every year we conduct public information sessions in the three regions of Malawi mainly in the main cities of Blantyre, Lilongwe and Mzunzu.
Every year, UWC Malawi conducts a rigorous process to select the most deserving Malawian students for this opportunity. Our selection process consists of an application essay and letter of interest. Shortlisted applicants are invited to attend team building activities and interviews on selection day. The selections for the 2017 scholarships had ended already. The 2018 scholarships will be available soon.

UWC Malawi offers support service Malawian UWC students. We engage with students and their parents, to ensure that our students are well equipped and succeed at UWC. We also host various events and get together for alumni, encouraging them to remain involved in the movement
