Nomination Scholarships, the most competitive awards Davidson offers, recognize and reward students who rank among the strongest in the nation.

You must be nominated for consideration. Heads of school or college counselors may nominate one or two candidate(s) per school or program for the Belk Scholarship, and up to three candidates for the Bryan Scholarship or the Charles Scholarship. You may also be nominated by our admission and financial aid staff on the basis of your strong application for admission.

Nomination Scholarships are renewable for each of your remaining three years at Davidson, providing established grade point average and progress toward degree requirements are met, and you participate fully and vigorously in the life of the college.
