Regent Scholarship

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. There are also perks and privileges associated with being a Regent Scholar.

Provost Award

The Provost Award is a highly prestigious award granted to high achieving admitted freshmen from various regions outside of the state of California. Recipients will receive $13,250 per year for a total of four years to assist with out-of-state tuition costs. Once awarded, it will be renewed for three years as long as the student meets academic standards and maintains enrollment requirements.
