GoMAD was created by Colin Habgood and his wife Jill Longson, class of 1981, to provide grants to UWC Atlantic College students. The concept allowed UWC Atlantic College students an opportunity to make a difference and put into practice the ideals of UWC. In 2016, the award was rolled out to all UWC Schools and Colleges, with 20 grants of £1000 each being made available to help students make a difference.
All students provided excellent presentations. Sian Jones, class of 1974, from the UK and Tim Leyshon, class of 1981, from the UK were part of the judging panel. Sian has a long-standing association with GoMAD and has been part of the selection panel, which awards financial grants, for a number of years. Ann Goodwin was also part of the panel and is running the GoMAD administration.
The following students were awarded certificates for a GoMAD grant of £1,000.00:
