Suomen UWC-yhdistys (United World Colleges National Committee of Finland) annually awards about a dozen scholarships for students to study at the United World Colleges. The Finnish Cultural Foundation has funded the scholarships since 1966. Svenska Kulturfonden also participates in the funding.

The application and student selection process is organized by the United World Colleges National Committee of Finland jointly with the UWC committee.

United World Colleges are international colleges that are independent in terms of administration and finances. United World Colleges follow the same principles in their operations. There are altogether twelve United World Colleges in five continents of the world. Students from Finland are sent to ten colleges. Their educational level corresponds to the last two years in a Finnish upper secondary school.
