Davies-Jackson Scholarship

About the Scholarship

​The Davies-Jackson Scholarship presents a unique opportunity for students with exceptional academic records, who are among the first generation in their families to graduate college, to participate in a course of study at St. John’s College at the University of Cambridge. Scholars are admitted as affiliated students and have the opportunity to take the more advanced parts of a Cambridge degree course and qualify for a Cambridge BA in two years instead of the usual three. Following the completion of their first year of study some Scholars have opted into a one year M. Phil program at the discretion of the Senior Tutor at St. John's.

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: Archaeology; Classics; Economics; Education; English; Geography; History; History of Art; History and Modern LanguagesHistory and Politics; Human, Social, and Political Sciences; Mathematics; Modern and Medieval Languages; Music; Philosophy; or Psychological and Behavioural Sciences
