Davidson offers this $25,000 scholarship to one student in the entering class in recognition of that student's significant experience and demonstrated success in Latin; interest in Latin as a field of study; and outstanding general academic accomplishment.

This award is renewable for each of the recipient's remaining three years at Davidson, providing GPA, progress toward degree, and Latin study (one course per academic year) requirements are met.

Recipients are not required to major in Classical Languages and Literature nor minor in Latin.

Available again for the Class of 2026.
