The Iain Ewing Memorial Endowment was established so that more scholars at UWCSEA could take part in the wide range of activities on offer at the College.
One of the most powerful elements of the UWC experience is that it opens hearts, minds and eyes to different experiences. Many of our scholars come from areas where education provision is limited to academics and access to additional opportunities that inspire are non-existent. Coming here, scholars are exposed to so much more and this generous gift allows them to truly make the most of their UWC journey.
Kovenda, a Grade 11 scholar from Namibia, was the first student to benefit from this fund and was able to develop his love of music through a songwriting workshop with Songwork International, a songwriting and music production company in Singapore.
“A word of thanks to my donors. The truth is I feel very lucky to be in a position to receive help from such great people and make a step forward towards my dream of becoming a songwriter.
I believe in the UWC mission and values and although I can never thank you nor the school enough for the wonderful opportunities that you have brought into my life, I hope that one day I will be able to pay forward with gratitude what I cannot repay.”
Kovenda, Class of 2018 from Namibia
