The skills and perspectives nurtured through Model UN strongly connect with Wooster’s mission to prepare graduates to become leaders of character and influence in an interdependent global community.

The Model UN Leadership Award, valued at $2,000 annually, recognizes first-year applicants who demonstrate leadership and growth through their high school Model UN experiences and intend to continue to do so at Wooster. They will join Wooster’s Model UN, which is consistently recognized for its award-winning success at two national conferences.

In order to renew the scholarship annually, award recipients are expected to fully participate in Wooster’s Model UN activities by trying out for the traveling team at least one semester of each academic year (our Model UN starts fresh to prepare for a new conference each semester). If they are not named to the traveling team, award recipients must contribute as part of the research team.

U.S. and international applicants must complete the Application for Admission and the Model UN Leadership Award Application by November 15, 2021 for notification by December 31, 2021. This scholarship is available to new students enrolling in the 2022-23 academic year.

Early Decision applicants who complete the Model UN Leadership Award application by November 1 will be notified of their award by November 15, 2021.

Competition based scholarships replace the Dean’s Scholarship amount, except for the Covenant and performing arts scholarships. All merit scholarships are automatically renewed each year as long as the student maintains full-time enrollment and remains in good academic and judicial standing with the College (please see additional qualifications for performing arts). Scholarship amounts listed may change. All admission and scholarship deadlines are postmarked deadlines.
