Davis United World Scholars

The Davis United World College Scholars Program, in which CC has been a participant since 2002, provides need-based scholarships for talented students who have graduated from United World College preparatory schools across the world. Begun in 2000 by philanthropists Shelby and Gale Davis as a pilot program with five partner schools, the Davis United World College Scholars Program has grown over the past decade into the largest international scholarship program for undergraduates in the world. It currently supports more than 2,000 scholars at more than 90 partner colleges and universities throughout the United States.

Below are some photos from the sixth annual dinner to recognize our Davis UWC scholars and to welcome our incoming scholars to campus.  At CC, we currently have 48 Davis UWC scholars (13 are freshmen, 12 are sophomores, 13 are juniors, and 10 are seniors) representing over 30 countries, including Swaziland, India, United Kingdom, Sri Lanka, Poland, Japan, Sweden, Mexico and Bulgaria.
