- ABOUT US
More than 5,000 UC Davis students were awarded scholarships during 2011-12, with nearly $12 million being paid to undergraduates. Scholarships are funded by individuals, corporations, professional associations, alumni and directly by the university.
Regents Scholarships, the university's most prestigious, are granted to students with exceptional academic records. Four-year Regents Scholarship awards during 2012-13 started at $7,500 annually and qualified students with demonstrated financial need received an additional stipend.
Transfer applicants need a GPA of 3.80 or above and must submit an online letter of recommendation to the Undergraduate Scholarship Office by January. Regents Scholars are notified of their awards by April. For more information, visit financialaid.ucdavis.edu/scholarships/apply.html.
The Cal Aggie Alumni Association (CAAA) awards alumni scholarships to entering students from California, Oregon and Washington who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Students do not need to have an affiliation with CAAA or a relative who attended UC Davis.
The minimum UC GPA requirement is 3.50 for freshman applicants and 3.25 in transferable coursework for applicants from community colleges. An online essay must be submitted as part of the application by April 1, 2013. CAAA scholars are notified of their awards in June.
