Competition Scholarships are some of our most important and generous awards. These annually renewable scholarships are offered to those who have demonstrated extraordinary potential and ability to contribute to our vigorous living and learning community.

Candidates are identified by our admission and financial aid staff and the Scholarship Programs office. Selection is based on a number of factors that Davidson values in its holistic review of students, inclusive of (but not exclusive to) the strength of their application, talents, experiences, leadership, service, etc.
