    The education I am receiving is worth the money my parents and I are spending. The Davidson Trust also makes it well worth it. It is a program that gives money to students in form of a grant. Any student will be grateful to walk out of their undergraduate education with little or no debt to pay back...it's a blessing.

    As most private schools are, Davidson is quite expensive. Davidson, however, has a financial aid program called the Davidson Trust. Student financial need is met completely through grants. They are also quite generous with the grants. Whatever you do, don't let finances stop you from applying to Davidson.
