This August, I start my two years in Dilijan, Armenia. It’s a small resort town in northern Armenia’s Tavush province, slightly NW of Lake Sevan.
The US selection committee for the Davis Scholarship placed me in Armenia, the location of one of about 17 UWCs located across the world, from Singapore and Swaziland to Costa Rica and Canada. Because students apply through their country’s selection committee, not directly to the school, they don’t have control in which school they attend. Personally, Armenia was one of my top choices and I’m grateful to be attending with a full merit scholarship to complete the IB Diploma program in a unique country at the crossroads of Europe and Asia.
