Davies-Jackson Scholarship

The Davies-Jackson Scholarship presents a unique opportunity for students with exceptional academic records, who are the first in their families to graduate college, to participate in a course of study at St. John’s College at the University of Cambridge. Graduating seniors may apply as affiliated students for the two-year B.A. degree program. This "Cantab Degree" as it is known is usually considered to be the equivalent of an M.A. in the United Stares.

Scholarship recipients will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the rich educational environment of St. John’s, which was founded in the 16th century, by reading in one of the following subjects: Classics; Economics; English; Geography; History; History of Art; Human, Social, and Political Sciences (HSPS includes politics, internatinoal relations, sociology, anthropology, and archaeology); Modern and Medieval Languages; Music; Philosophy; or Psychological and Behavioural Sciences.
