The Regents Scholarship is one of the most prestigious awards bestowed upon an undergraduate at UC Davis. This honor is awarded to specially selected freshmen and juniors. It is a $7,500 scholarship, which may be accompanied by a stipend for those with demonstrated financial need. These scholarships are renewable as long as the student maintains a 3.25 grade point average and remains in good academic standing. For more information about the award, please review the Regents Scholarship website.
Freshmen applicants are considered solely on the basis of information contained in the UC application for admission and scholarships, which must be received by the November 30 deadline; no other documentation is required.
Transfer applicants must also submit the UC application for admission and scholarships by November 30, have a minimum GPA of 3.80, and submit a letter of recommendation by the deadline in early January. More information about the letter of recommendation requirement can be found on the Undergraduate Scholarship application page
