Currently, the Foundation and its partners finance the education of Russian and foreign students in the United World Colleges global network, the operations of a UWC establishment in the Armenian city of Dilijan and the further education of its talented graduates at higher education institutions of different countries.

Scholae Mundi runs the Surpass Dreams youth scholarship program for Russian finance students.


Education in the developing world should provide comprehensive development, yet also empower individuals to choose their own path.
