Presbyterian Scholars Program

The D&E Presbyterian Scholars Program provides financial support to students who are members of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

Students who qualify for the Presbyterian Scholars Program will receive an annual $5,000 award while enrolled at the College. The program highlights D&E’s relationship with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) by providing support to Presbyterian students looking for a college experience that honors their faith tradition.

Davis & Elkins students have access to a wide variety of opportunities for prayer, worship, service, humanitarian aid and discussion about topics relevant in today’s world. The Benfield-Vick Chaplain and campus Spiritual Life Team provide support to students in their personal and spiritual growth through weekly chapel services, weekly campus Bible study/Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, a chapter of Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and discussion groups. The College enjoys a significant relationship with neighboring Davis Memorial Presbyterian Church, where students can attend weekly worship and Bible study, get connected to opportunities to serve the local community and experience a community of faith through traditions similar to their own.

Another Presbyterian-based scholarship opportunity is the Covenant Scholarship. Equal to one-half of tuition costs, the Covenant Scholarship is open to children of ordained PC(USA) clergy.
