The Challenge

Newsflash! Donation port-hole now open!  

Beginning this December, Terence Steinberg is competing as a solo rower in the Atlantic Challenge, a 3,000-mile rowing ocean race from La Gomera, Spain to Antigua in the Caribbean.

Terence will row more than twelve hours per day for up to three months without seeing another soul. The motivation? To pay forward his UWC education and show that the world is smaller than we think.

More people have visited outer space 
and climbed Everest than have rowed the Atlantic solo.

Attending a United World College is a lot like rowing an ocean:
it shows our human potential is much larger, and the world is much smaller 
than many commonly believe.

UWC pushes students  beyond their comfort and into a world of deep transformation: a world where peace is possible, where humans are far more alike than different, and by working together, we can achieve anything. Repaying the gifts Terence received through his UWC experience would be impossible, but through the UWC Challenge he intends to pay them forward.

United World Challenge is a collaboration  among UWC alumni, partners, and the public to join together to raise new scholarships while sharing UWC’s story with the world.

Tell us – what is your ocean? What inspires you to push your own limits? We’d love to hear from you:
