The Davis Scholars Program - An Integrated Financial Support package for Entering Students Who Demonstrate Unusual Promise

The Davis Scholars Program

Amount:
$1,000

Eligibility:
Individuals selected as Davis Scholars have demonstrated exemplary academic ability and leadership potential prior to enrolling at Elizabeth City State University. The program builds upon the Davis School's emphasis on diversity. In this instance, the intent is to bring to campus men and women who have an exemplary record of accomplishments, and who appear willing to share their abilities with others.

Davis Scholar awards are merit based. Secondary school grade point average, grades at other colleges and universities, courses taken, SAT scores, and involvement, particularly leadership involvement, in service-oriented organizations are considered. Each applicant's essay is also examined for evidence of unusual accomplishments.

Davis Scholars Scholarship consists of a laptop computer and $1,000 a year for up to four years. Currently, three scholarships are endowed. The donors are North Carolina Independent Insurance Agents, Wachovia Foundation, and Matt and Holly Wood. The school is actively seeking donors to endow additional scholarships.
