All students admitted to Davidson are automatically considered for a limited number of General Merit Scholarships. These awards, which can range from $500 to $15,000 annually, are made without regard to financial need and are intended to recognize those students whose accomplishments mark them as having extraordinary potential for impact on the Davidson community and for future contributions to society. Recipients are selected primarily on the basis of the strength of their applications for admission; no separate scholarship application is required for these awards. Early Decision and Regular Decision candidates are evaluated equally. Once academic excellence is established, General Merit Scholarships may also be awarded with additional preferences that recognize those skills, interests and experiences marked as key to the vitality of the Davidson experience. These include but are not limted to: first-generation students, scholar-athletes, students from specific geographic regions, students with specific academic interests, students with leadership skills or a significant commitment to service, and others. Approximately 10 percent of each enrolling class will be offered a merit-based scholarship.
Number of Awards
All merit-based scholarships are renewable for a student's four years at Davidson, provided grade point average, progress-toward-degree requirements, and any award-specific requirements are met.
