Several hundred scholarships are available to undergraduate students at UC Davis. The UC Davis Undergraduate and Prestigious Scholarship Office administers $6 million in scholarships for which undergraduate students can apply. Merit is the primary basis for awarding scholarships, but other criteria also can apply. Some scholarships are designated for students within a specific major or college. Eligibility for other scholarships may be defined by participation in extracurricular activities; career interests; geographic origin; high school or community college attended; parentage; perseverance; or other conditions or characteristics.
