UC Davis has multiple undergraduate scholarships available to benefit students from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. The scholarships can range from $100 to $14,000 per academic year. Undergraduate scholarships are all awarded on a merit basis. Scholarship criteria may also include participation in extracurricular activities; specific college or major; career interests; geographic origin; high school or community college attended; parentage; perseverance; and many other personal characteristics. The majority of UC Davis’ scholarships are not renewed automatically; therefore, students must reapply to be considered for scholarships on an annual basis. A minimum 3.25 GPA is required for all applicants.
