The idea of creating the College was conceived by social entrepreneurs Ruben Vardanyan and Veronika Zonabend back in 2006. Their initiative was then joined by nearly 300 donors from across the world. In October 2014 UWC Dilijan officially opened its doors to 94 pioneer students, becoming the 14th UWC college.
Dilijan lies on the road connecting two modern large cities, Yerevan and Tbilisi, in a country that is situated on the border of Europe and Asia, at the heart of the diverse, culturally rich and complex region with a long history at the junction of the Persian, Byzantine, Ottoman and Russian Empires.
