UWC Maples2The Maples Foundation has donated US$25,000 to the United World Colleges Cayman Islands National Foundation (UWC).

Each year, UWC Cayman Islands provides full scholarships for students selected to attend one of twelve prestigious UWC colleges worldwide. Since 1984, almost 70 Caymanians have studied the rigorous International Baccalaureate Diploma in this international boarding school setting designed to foster excellence in academics, civic participation and leadership qualities while promoting international understanding and sustainable living.

The impressive growth of this local scholarship programme has been made possible through the generous support of a few major corporate partners and individual donors.

UWC Cayman Islands Vice Chair Aubry Bodden said, “Maples has been an integral part of the local UWC movement since 2006 and their annual donations have supported scholarships for over a dozen exceptional young Caymanians. Our recent alumni have all directly benefited from their long-standing commitment to this shared vision and we are so proud of their accomplishments and grateful to our sponsors for making their experiences possible.”

Maples Cayman Managing Partner Paul Lumsden said, “Maples has been a supporter of this programme for many years and are proud to stand behind such an important initiative that has afforded many students the opportunity of further education.”
