SHAPE THE FUTURE.
SUPPORT THE CHANGE.

SUPPORT THE CHANGE!

We are UWC Maastricht. We are Anna or Sidiki, Maartje or Abdul. We come from the Netherlands or ​Namibia​, from both well-off and disadvantaged areas. We grew up in material abundance or in hardship. We are different from each other like day and night, like sun and moon. But together, we make up UWC Maastricht. We are one school. One community.

For us, education is a means for change. A way to unite people and cultures for peace and impact. For a sustainable future. We choose not to lag behind but to work together to achieve change. United, we make the world a better place – both for and with each other. We’re doing this together with Clin and Isabella. With Oxie and Olya. With Anna, Paul, and Nils. And with you!

We’re reaching out to you: individuals, philanthropists, companies and foundations. We invite you into our community. Get to know us and celebrate. Shape the future with us. Help us to be the change!

Individuals

We are reaching out to you! Together we can shape someone’s future and contribute to the next generation of changemakers. UWC Maastricht receives donations, small or big, from parents, alumni and philanthropists who believe in the power of education for a better world.

Companies

We rely on financial aid from (international) companies for scholarships for our students. Businesses that identify with our mission for peace and a sustainable future, that want to invest in young talent, or enterprises that support us as part of their corporate social responsibility policy.

Foundations and Funds

Deliberate diversity is key at UWC Maastricht. In order to welcome students from all socio-economic backgrounds, we team up with local, national and global partners. Together we create opportunities that impact not only the scholars, but also their communities and beyond.

We use education as a way to change the world. For a better world. As an inclusive school we select students originating from all over the world. They represent a wide variety of religions, political perspectives and cultures, from royals to refugees. We equip students with the attitude, skills and knowledge to live a meaningful and flourishing live by making a positive contribution to society.

All students together spend more than 40.000 hours a year doing voluntary work in Maastricht and its region. Cooking for elderly, handing out food to homeless people, picking litter, being a buddy to disabled children. At the same time, they identify challenges within in their home countries. Poor living conditions in refugee camps in Western Saharah, lack of education for orphans in Laos or discrimination of LGBTQ+ communities all over the world.

The overarching aim of our education is to nurture the skills and attitudes needed to be an active participant in society. We encourage students to identify problems and injustices wherever they exist, and to focus on the mechanisms through which positive change can be achieved.

At UWC Maastricht social responsibility is part of the students’ DNA. Locally, nationally and globally.
