Going abroad is an exhilarating, affirming and transformative experience. The college emphasizes understanding the world at large and prepares students for the challenges of national and international leadership through its study abroad opportunities. Davidson students embrace education abroad in all forms – to conduct research, perform service, or complete an internship. Approximately three quarters of the student body study, travel, work, or perform service in another country.
Study abroad is an invaluable opportunity that supplements the Davidson undergraduate experience. Students have the opportunity to choose from more than 10 Davidson faculty led programs and from over 100 academic programs that are operated by third-party providers around the world. Last year, well over half of our graduating class studied abroad for a year, semester, or summer.
Travel grants provide one of Davidson's most effective internationalization tools. During the last academic year, the program awarded grants to 96 students totaling $228,250. Most of these grants go to students who design their own research projects abroad. Projects included archaeological digs in Mexico and field biology and rainforest ecology research in Australia. These kinds of projects give students the opportunity to develop the kind of independence and creativity that are hallmarks of a liberal arts education.

  • Merit-based: These awards are based on a student's academic, artistic, athletic or other abilities, and often factor in an applicant's extracurricular activities and community service record. The most common merit-based scholarships, awarded by either private organizations or directly by a student's intended college, recognize academic achievement or high scores on standardized tests. Most such merit-based scholarships are paid directly by the institution the student attends, rather than issued directly to the student.[3]
  • Need-based: Some private need-based awards are confusingly called scholarships, and require the results of a FAFSA (the family's EFC). However, scholarships are often merit-based, while grants tend to be need-based.[4]
  • Student-specific: These are scholarships for which applicants must initially qualify based upon gender, race, religion, family, and medical history, or many other student-specific factors. Minority scholarships are the most common awards in this category.[citation needed] For example, students in Canada may qualify for a number of aborigi
Each year since 1985, Kappa Gamma Pi has awarded one or more Cornaro Scholarships for Graduate Studies. Because eligibility is limited to Kappa Gamma Pi members, all of whom are honors graduates, the quality of the recipients is exceptional. The Cornaro Scholarship is competitive and is based on a number of criteria, specifically how the recipient’s life reflects the Kappa Gamma Pi motto of Faith and Service. Recipients of the Cornaro Scholarship encompass the values of volunteer work, leadership experience, high academic standards and solid career aspirations. The scholarship program is supported by donations made by Kappa members and friends.
The Cornaro Scholarship derives its name from Elena Lucrezia Cornaro Piscopia, the first woman in the world to receive a university degree of any kind. Elena Cornaro, a member of a noble Venetian family, received the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in 1678 from the University of Padua, Italy. It was an accomplishment unparalleled for the time

Are you struggling to pay for graduate school, and do you find yourself looking for scholarships for master’s programs? We’ve created this article with you in mind.
Despite the challenges and stress of assessment tests, applications, homework, and research, the hardest part about deciding to pursue a master’s degree is often the question of how to pay for it. While most graduate schools accept financial aid in the form of federal student loans, you may have already accrued a hefty debt while paying for your undergraduate years. Master’s degree scholarships, grants, and fellowships require a little extra effort to achieve, but they can prove to be a career-changing benefit to any master’s student struggling to juggle coursework and research (not to mention maintaining a balanced diet of something other than ramen noodles).

Scholarships for the 2013-2014 year have largely been determined. It allows for a look back into the financial aid received over the last four years to assess the validity and effectiveness of monies received. Financial aid is the means by which universities acquire a student body that is advantageous to the perception of the institution and for the future quality of alumni (and therefore, future funding). Private universities are more adept at providing financial aid because they have turned it into an intrinsic part of their business model: pay for top talent against fierce competition and make a return thereafter.
