Here you’ll find info about what exactly the Davies Jackson scholarship is. As I note below, you should apply if you can. It will change your life in the most amazing way.
The Davies Jackson Scholarship presents a unique opportunity for students with exceptional academic records, who are the first in their families to graduate from college, to participate in a course of study at St. John’s College, Cambridge University.
Graduating seniors may apply as an Affiliated Student for the two-year B.A. degree program.
Supported by an anonymous benefactor, the Davies Jackson Scholarship covers all fees, room, and board during termtime for up to two academic years (beginning in September), and living expenses during summer vacation.
Travel to and from England is also covered. The award is valued at $50,000, depending on prevailing exchange rates.
As a past scholar, you should apply. I can’t recommend that strongly enough. Go on. Try it. The worst that can happen is they say no.
And the best? The best is that you get it. Two years. Cambridge. The fascinating story of an anonymous donor. A network of previous alumni. Summer travel. And did I mention, Cambridge? It’s amazing.
