Davis United World Scholars Program

Best College for Davis UWC Scholars

St. John’s College loves students who attend United World Colleges. In fact, admitted Davis UWC Scholars are guaranteed a full-tuition scholarship to attend St. John’s for four years. Why? Because Davis Scholars thrive at St. John’s: our classes are small and discussion-based, the culture at St. John’s is intellectually adventurous and international, and the heart of the curriculum, much like Theory of Knowledge, is our passion for philosophy. In short: UWC students and St. John’s College are an incredibly good fit.

About the Program

And you will have faculty, staff, and residential life mentors who meet regularly to provide academic, social, and career support.

Thanks to an anonymous alumni gift in 2019, newly admitted Davis Scholars will receive a full-tuition scholarship and attend St. John’s tuition-free for all four years.

Davis Scholars are responsible for room, board, and other fees, but not tuition. The college also meets the full demonstrated need of Davis Scholars, up to and including room, board, and other fees.
