answers to the frequently asked questions

What is a scholarship and how to get it?

In 2024 the scholarship program will be extended to applicants of the UWC short course only.


Scholarship funds are limited. The need-based system ensures that scholarships are provided to those candidates who truly need them.

If candidates applying for the scholarship, they will need to fill out the financial assessment form. Together with the completed form, candidates’ parents must submit paperwork verifying the family's income and expenditures.

The Independent Financial Evaluation Committee shall review the submitted paperwork and determine the scholarship amount available to the candidate.

The suggested scholarship amount is final and can't be renegotiated.

Attention: the number of scholarship places is limited and distributed according to the payment for participation. The approved amount of scholarship support is valid for a week after receiving the contract. If the payment has not been made during this time, the proposal for the amount of payment must be reconfirmed by the organizer.

Fill out the application form, record the video interview and after your application is confirmed, you can apply for the financial assessment by filling the booking form.

Do you recommend any flights?

The flights logistics have become more difficult. We will inform you with exact information closer to the camp. If you do not want to wait, we will be happy to help you order a taxi.

If you are unable to accompany your child, campers aged between 5 and 16 years can travel without parents under the supervision of a flight company staff. The staff will take care of children at all stages of their travels including check-in, boarding, flying, arrival and transfer if needed. For more details, please contact Aeroflot to purchase the service. Regarding the rules about the travels of underaged kids without parents’ supervision of other airlines, contact them directly.

How will my kid get to the UWC Dilijan Campus?
The group transfer from Zvartnots Airport and back is organized for all campers. In the arrival zone, the Just Dilijan It! staff will meet and accompany campers to the campus on comfortable buses.

The other group transfer is organized from the Republic Square in Yerevan for the participants of the Interactive Program and UWC Short Course at 12:30 on the starting day of the program.

The road from Yerevan to Dilijan takes approximately 2 hours. In case you chose another flights, please let us know the arrival and departure details, we will provide you an additional information.
How many mealtimes are there each day?
Participants have five mealtimes per day: breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and supper.
What are the security arrangements?
Round the clock video surveillance on the campus, and round the clock patrols by a licensed security firm.
How is first aid provided?
The campus has its own medical centre staffed with qualified doctors and nurses who are available 24 hours per day. If a specialist is required, the child will be taken to the Tavush medical centre which is open 24/7. If necessary, an accompanied trip will be organized to a medical facility in Yerevan.
How can I get in touch with my child if I need to? Where can I find contact information for the camp's Director, Facilitators and who is there to take my call at any time?
In each group there will be a telephone with an Armenian number, which you can call if you need to get in touch with your child. The contact information, and phone number, will be given to you by the manager upon request at the start of each group.
Do I need to provide any pocket money?
Kids will be provided with everything they need during their stay, this includes entrance to all excursions included in the program. During the excursion, the children will occasionally have the opportunity to buy souvenirs or non-perishable foodstuffs. You have to decide by yourself whether you will provide pocket money, and if so, then how much, as well as talking to your child about their responsibility to keep it safe (see the answer to the next question).

The college's academic building has enough lockers to secure valuable items. Each child at the beginning of each group will be provided with an individual locker in the room.
