John Montgomery Belk Scholarship

The John Montgomery Belk Scholarship is one of our nation's most prestigious and generous undergraduate scholarships. The program is built around our belief that, as a Belk Scholar, you possess unique talents that should be recognized and nurtured.

John M. Belk '43 amassed a record of leadership and accomplishment at Davidson. Thanks to the generosity of the John M. Belk Educational Foundation, up to eight scholarship recipients are selected in every entering class.

The scholarship can provide you comprehensive funding (tuition, fees, room and board) plus study stipends, and allows you great flexibility in the on- and off-campus opportunities you choose to explore. Those experiences, paired with our academic programs, deepen your intelligence, maturity, and global understanding.
