Aurora Humanitarian Initiative & NEF grants
Aurora Humanitarian Initiative and NEF joint grant programme for studies at UWC schools and colleges
In 2015 Scholae Mundi supported The Aurora Humanitarian Initiative and Near East Foundation (NEF) initiative in establishing the Gratitude Scholarship Programme, aimed to express gratitude on behalf of the global Armenian community to the people of the Middle East who offered shelter and food to those displaced by the Armenian Genocide over a century ago. The Gratitude Scholarship Programme was developed for students from the Middle East to study in UWC schools and colleges. The first ten students who received The Aurora Humanitarian Initiative and NEF scholarships began their studies at UWC colleges in September of 2016.
About the project:

The Aurora Humanitarian Initiative and Near East Foundation programme ensures the provision of scholarships to receive a world-class education at UWC schools and colleges to students from Middle Eastern countries living in a vulnerable situation, affected by war and conflict. The selection of candidates for scholarships is made by the UWC National Committees.

The eight year-long educational programme is aimed at the driven and motivated schoolchildren from Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Palestine and the Palestinian camps in Lebanon. The programme will award 100 scholarships over its lifetime, with 60% of the students studying at UWC Dilijan in Armenia, and the rest at to other UWC schools and colleges around the world.

The Near East Foundation will take on the role of collecting information on potential scholarship candidates and passing it on to the UWC National Committees.

Project Contributors:

The Aurora Humanitarian Initiative is committed to building a broad, global humanitarian movement. The initiative is rooted in inspiring stories of courage and survival that emerged during the Armenian Genocide, when 1.5 million Armenians perished. Those fortunate few who survived were saved by the courageous and heroic acts of institutions and individuals who intervened, at great risk. A century later, the Aurora Humanitarian Initiative seeks to express gratitude, share remarkable stories of survivors and their saviors, and celebrate the strength of the human spirit. The Aurora Humanitarian Initiative creates and supports projects designed to raise public awareness and address some of the world’s most pressing humanitarian issues. These projects include the Aurora Prize for Awakening Humanity, the Aurora Dialogues, the Aurora Humanitarian Index, the Gratitude Projects and the 100 LIVES Initiative. The Aurora Humanitarian Initiative is the philanthropic vision of Vartan Gregorian, Noubar Afeyan and Ruben Vardanyan. It is represented by three organizations - the 100 Lives Foundation, Inc. (New York, USA), the 100 Lives Foundation (Geneva, Switzerland) and the IDeA Foundation (Yerevan, Armenia).  

Near East Foundation helps build more sustainable, prosperous, and inclusive communities in the Middle East and Africa. NEF has worked with refugees since it was founded in 1915 in response to the Armenian Genocide, and has organized relief and development projects in nearly 50 countries worldwide. For more than 100 years, NEF has worked to provide vulnerable and disenfranchised populations with the skills and resources they need in order to fully engage and prosper in their own communities and economies. 

United World Colleges (UWC) movement makes education a force, to unite people, nations and cultures, to create a peaceful and sustainable future. The UWC schools and colleges offer a nurturing environment for representatives of different countries and peoples, religions and social groups to study and live together. The UWC’s unique educational model places great importance on learning through experience, so that today’s young generation can take an active role in society in the future. The UWC movement was founded in 1962, and now comprises of 17 schools and colleges located in Asia, Africa, Europe, North and South America. The two-year IB Diploma (International Baccalaureate, pre-university course) forms the academic base of the UWC and is recognized by the top universities in the world. Currently, 70% of those studying at UWC are on a full or partial scholarship. In addition to the two-year IB Diploma, students at UWC can study topics such as conflict management and environmental awareness. These programmes are often carried out in regions where political, ethnic or ecological issues are prevalent. UWC strives to instill in its students a sense of social responsibility, forming a community of alumni from around the world, which today stands at over 60,000, who share the same values for peace, kindness and international understanding.
