Davidson invites high schools from across the country to nominate outstanding students with extraordinary potential to compete for the John Montgomery Belk Scholarship.
A candidate's record and recommendations must demonstrate purposeful engagement in the classroom, with student and civic organizations, on the athletic field or in the arts. While academic achievement is paramount, Belk Scholars also exhibit intellectual curiosity and a commitment to both their local and global communities.
Nomination and Selection Process
Guidance counselors, heads of school, or principals may nominate one candidate from each school.
The Davidson Admission Staff may also nominate candidates based on the strength of the students' applications for admission.
Nominations must be made by this date by completing the online nomination form and submitting the required documentation (recommendation letter, transcript, and school profile) to the Office of Admission and Financial Aid.
Application completion deadline for nominees.
Application by this deadline does not indicate a commitment to Early Decision.
Phone interviews will be conducted with semifinalists selected from the nominee pool.
March 21-23 2013
Finalists will visit Davidson for Belk Scholars Weekend to participate in interviews conducted by selection committees composed of members of the Belk family, Davidson faculty and administrators and current and past Belk Scholars.
Up to 8 John Montgomery Belk Scholars will be selected.
