International Students

In 2000 the Davis United World College Scholars program began providing scholarships to graduates of UWCs who chose to attend Colby College, College of the Atlantic, Middlebury College, Princeton University or Wellesley College. College of the Atlantic was proud to have eight Davis Scholars in the class that entered in 2000. Since then the program has grown and UWC graduates receive financial support from the Davis United World College Scholars program to attend nearly one hundred U.S. colleges and universities. COA continues to benefit from the generosity of the Davis family and the presence of UWC alumni; nearly two hundred UWC graduates currently attend or have graduated from COA.

The Davis United World College Scholars program's aims are twofold. It provides access to higher education for outstanding students who have experience, through enrollment in a United World College, in building communities of international understanding. Additionally, it enriches the diversity and promotes global awareness at American colleges and universities. College of the Atlantic is grateful to the Shelby and Gale Davis and their family's foundation for their generous support.

Between 2000 and 2012 Davis Scholars from the following places have enrolled at College of the Atlantic: Afghanistan, Albania, Argentina, Australia, Belarus, Belgium, Belize, Bhutan, Bolivia, Canada, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Estonia, Ethiopia, Finland, France, Germany, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Kosovo, Latvia, Maldives, Malta, Mauritius, Mexico, Montenegro, Namibia, Nepal, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Northern Ireland, Palestine, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, Rwanda, St. Lucia, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Swaziland, Switzerland, Sweden, Tanzania, Tibet, Ukraine, United Kingdom, Uruguay, United States of America, Venezuela, Western Sahara, and Zimbabwe.
