Important Updates

Outside Scholarships

As the Undergraduate and Prestigious Scholarships office becomes aware of outside scholarship opportunities, we will post them here. UC Davis does not endorse or recommend any particular organization, individual, points of view, products, or services offered by these outside sites. While we screen these listings to eliminate any offers that do not appear to be legitimate, students should review all scholarship information carefully. Please see our scholarship application tips section, for information on how to search for outside scholarships.

Each of these scholarship and award opportunities comes with different restrictions; for additional information and application materials, please visit their website and/or contact the organization directly. International and undocumented students are welcome to apply, as long as all other requirements are met. Items are listed alphabetically by organization along with a brief description of the award.
