Scholarships & Financial Aid 

Davidson College is committed to access and affordability. Scholarships and financial aid are available to students with financial need. A limited amount of aid is available and is awarded on the basis of academic achievement and need. The July Experience program is not funded by the Davidson Trust. Therefore, we cannot commit to meeting 100 percent of  need for each student for this program.
