The University of California Davis, a leading public US university in many respects, has much to offer its students. One of those things is financial aid. In order to become more accessible to a wider range of students through what it calls aid and scholarships. Unlike several other forms of aid, these school grants do not ned to be repaid. The only condition for keeping these academic scholarships is by remaining eligible. Five separate school grants are on offer.
The first of the five is for first-time undergraduates with financial need. The Federal Pell Grant is variable, depending on the EFC (Expected Family Contribution), which is affected such as the number of siblings in college, income, assets, marital status, and medical expenses. The second is the Federal SEOG (Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants), which are given to those with particularly severe financial need. This is limited in availability, but eligible students may be offered another form of educational grant instead. Third are Cal Grants, which come in two types. Of all the scholarships applications, they are the only ones requiring the submission of a GPA Verification form. Fourth is the California Chafee Grant program which is given to people who once were, or still are under foster care. Fifth are a wider variety of grants. These are determined by the applicant’s financial situation at the time of applying. One thing that must be noted is that it will not cover nonresident tuition. This means that anybody purssuing an online degree will not be eligible for grants.
Scholarships are also on offer. One two will be considered, however, undergraduate scholarships and prestigious scholarships. These educational scholarships are quite ditinct from one another. The former range from USD 100 to USD 13,000 a year. As they are merit-based, no application is necessary unlike the aforementioned grants. Prestigious scholarships on the other hand, require much preparation. Regular meetings with a mentor are part of the highly-competitive nature of these scholarships. This is bosltered by the fact that they are competing with students from other universities for these scholarships.
