Helping Students Pursue Their College & Career Aspirations

Davidson College Belk Scholarship

JOHN MONTGOMERY BELK SCHOLARSHIP

The John Montgomery Belk Scholarship is one of our nation’s most prestigious and generous undergraduate scholarships. The program is built around our belief that, as a Belk Scholar, you possess unique talents that should be recognized and nurtured.

John M. Belk ’43 amassed a record of leadership and accomplishment at Davidson. Thanks to the generosity of the John M. Belk Educational Endowment, 32 Belk Scholars are currently enrolled at Davidson (8 Belk Scholars named in each entering class).

The Belk Scholarship will provide you comprehensive funding (tuition, fees, room and board) plus special study stipends that allow you great flexibility in the on- and off-campus opportunities you choose to explore. Those experiences, paired with our academic programs, deepen your intellect, maturity, and global understanding.
