1 August 2023

Three students selected to attend UWC Adriatic, UWC East Asia and UWC Maastricht

Three second-level students from Ireland have been chosen by United World Colleges (UWC) to receive a scholarship and travel abroad to partner colleges in Europe and Africa to pursue the esteemed International Baccalaureate (IB) programme from 2023 – 2025.

The three students were selected for their strong academic records, interest in public service, and aptitude for personal leadership and will now embark on an enriching journey to complete the International Baccalaureate programme over the course of two years.

Luke Carroll (17) from Portlaoise, Co. Laois will attend UWC Adriatic in Italy, Traolach Dawson (17) from Glanmire, Co. Cork will travel to UWC East Africa in Tanzania, while Kai Kane (16) from Cork City will attend UWC Maastricht in the Netherlands.

The International Baccalaureate programme is a transformative curriculum, with the aim of equipping young students with the necessary resources to help shape a brighter collective future.

Each year, UWC Ireland selects three students from a diverse pool of applicants who apply to participate in the programme. This year marks the 60 th anniversary of the scholarship programme and to date UWC Ireland has supported 180 students.

The UWC scholarship programme empowers ambitious young individuals, providing them with the opportunity to broaden their horizons and explore diverse international campuses around the world. Fully or partly funded scholarships are offered to ensure that scholars can immerse themselves in the cultural exchange without any academic constraints. To support these students in their studies, United World Colleges have committed over €130,000 in scholarship funding over the next two years.
