The human rights lawyer Amal Clooney has partnered with 100 Lives, a new global initiative that supports an annual scholarship for young women from Lebanon to pursue studies at the United World College Dilijan in Armenia. This yearly Amal Clooney Scholarship, as it will be known, will fund one female student to enroll on a two-year international baccalaureate program. The candidate will be selected based on ‘her exemplary academic performance and demonstrable interest in the promotion of human rights and international issues’.

The annual selection process is managed by a dedicated UWC National Committee in Lebanon, and is based on the UWC entry requirements and Amal Clooney Scholarship criteria.
