UC Davis Regents Scholars

The most prestigious scholarship on the UC Davis campus, the Regents Scholarship is awarded to students based solely on their academic and personal achievements. If you will enter UC Davis as a freshman or junior transfer, or if you are a continuing student entering your junior year, you are eligible for this scholarship and its associated privileges. 

As a Regents Scholar, you may choose to join the UC Davis Regents Scholars Society (RSS), a student organization comprised entirely of Regents Scholars. Established in 2002, the group promotes community, scholarship and service through a variety of activities. Members participate in workshops and other learning opportunities both on campus and throughout the Sacramento area; they also network with scholars from other UC campuses at the annual Regents Scholars Conference. Additionally, RSS students help recruit other Regents Scholars to the UC Davis campus by hosting lunches, guiding tours and serving as panelists at recruitment events.
