UC Davis Scholarships And Financial Aid
UC Davis has several scholarships and financial aid programs available to students. The Inclusive Access program, Work-Study, and Scholarships are some of the programs that are available.
UC Davis has a lot to offer students, from undergraduate programs to postgraduate studies. It also provides generous scholarships to help students pay for their education. These funds are distributed based on merit and can be applied for by completing the UC Application.
The UC-Davis financial aid office offers two unique programs: The Aggie Grant Plan and the Blue and Gold Opportunity Grants. The Aggie Grant Plan is designed to help low-income families attend UC Davis. It offers up to $3,771 toward base fees.
The Blue and Gold Opportunity Grants are similar but provide smaller amounts of money. In addition, students are eligible for federal grants that provide gift aid to students with financial need. For example, the Pell Grant is a federal grant that awards up to $6,195 per year for the 2019-2020 academic year.
The University of California-Davis also participates in the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) program. This federal program offers grants to students who have extreme financial need. In addition, the UC-Davis financial aid office participates in a variety of state programs.
UC Davis Work-Study offers two types of awards. Students with financial need may receive a Work-Study award to help them meet educational expenses. There are many benefits of Work-Study, including the opportunity to gain work experience. If you are interested in work study, contact the UC Davis Financial Aid Office.
UC Davis offers both undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to participate in the work study program. Graduate students have additional requirements. Graduate students must submit monthly time records to the Work-Study Manager.
Students may work part-time in a community service position. Most employers try to coordinate their work schedules with the student’s academic schedule. Graduate students should check the Internship and Career Center for more information on obtaining a work study position.
Students with Work-Study awards may work for up to 40 hours per week. Students should not be paid more than this amount unless approved by their supervisor. A student may not hold more than two Work-Study jobs at the same time.
Inclusive Access program
UC Davis is one of many universities that offers an Inclusive Access program. Often referred to as automatic textbook billing, Inclusive Access provides a low cost option for students to purchase course materials. This program was started by the UC Davis Stores and is now a part of UC’s larger Equitable Access initiative.
Equitable Access will be available to undergraduates starting in the fall of 2020. The program will provide all course materials required for a term for a single fee. This program aims to combat inequity in the cost of course materials.
In order to provide equitable access, the UC Davis Stores worked with 12 of the largest textbook publishers. They negotiated with these publishers to find a pricing structure that would be affordable to students. Then, UC Davis Stores worked with Milliman, the world’s largest actuarial science firm, to crunch numbers to determine the fee rate that would save students money.
The UC Davis Stores also worked with VitalSource to develop an online learning management system that provides digital course content. In the first year of the program, students saved over $1 million. The program provides day-one access to adaptive course content and is integrated with the university’s LMS.
Financial aid requirements
UC Davis offers a strong financial aid program. More than three-quarters of the school’s undergraduate students receive some form of financial aid. The school’s institutional aid is higher than the average for public schools.
Students with financial need qualify for Pell Grants, which do not require repayment. Pell Grant recipients will see their award listed on their financial aid award letter. If you are not sure if you qualify, see the Office of Financial Aid.
Academic Scholarships are awarded to new freshmen and transfer students based on their grade at entrance. These scholarships are renewable for up to four years. To qualify, a student must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0. If the student has a high cumulative GPA, he or she may qualify for an even higher award.
Pell Grants are awarded by the federal government. Pell Grants are awarded to undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need. In order to qualify for a Pell Grant, you must submit a FAFSA.
