Scholarship Support

About 40% of contributions that are not designated for a specific use are reserved for scholarships and student grants.

Helping girls achieve an education is one of our primary goals. The UWD provides scholarships for tuition, as well as student grants to pay for non-tuition items (such as school supplies, uniforms, desks, etc.).

Your contributions to the scholarship fund will help us turn the dream of an education into reality for girls throughout our Unity. Information about where to send contributions is available from the Making Donations page.

Below are just some of the ways that your contributions are used:

  • $5 will provide school supplies for a girl for one semester in Tanzania.
  • $7 will provide a uniform for a girl in Tanzania to participate in the “free” primary education that is offered there.  Without a uniform, a child cannot attend school.
