Financial aid scholarships are available for early- and regular-decision admission applicants.

The amount of financial aid awarded is based on calculated need.

During the admission process for international applicants, we are not need-blind but we do commit to meeting 100 percent of the calculated financial need for those admitted. Financial aid is limited and competitive; international students seeking financial assistance must apply for aid at the time of applying for admission, and by the deadlines indicated.

Applications for financial assistance from international students submitted after admission to Davidson are not accepted, nor will they be accepted for the duration of enrollment at Davidson. Read more about the admission requirements and view our tuition and fees information to help you fill out the required forms.

Required Forms for All International Students

Required financial aid verification and application documents will be available in the Davidson portal after submitting an application for admission.

If your family's financial contribution for your education will be less than $5,000 per year, you will have access to an alternative form on your Davidson admission portal. If your family contribution will be more than $5,000 per year, we require the CSS Profile.
