The Davies-Jackson Scholarship is given to graduating seniors with exceptional academic records who are the first in their family to graduate from college. The prestigious award offers top academic students who are able to demonstrate significant achievement in the liberal arts the chance to study internationally. Scholarship recipients have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the rich educational environment of St. John's, which was founded in the 16th 65375century and is one of the most renowned of about 30 Colleges comprising Cambridge University. The opportunity is specifically designed for students who will benefit from the rigorous and in-depth approach to education that characterizes the Cambridge experience.

The award covers fees and expenses, including room and board, and is valued at $50,000. The primary purpose of the scholarship is to provide an educational opportunity similar to the one received by the donor, who became part of the intellectual community and vowed to give back the gift he was given.

The Council of Independent Colleges assists the U.S. Selection Committee of the Davies-Jackson Scholarship to administer the program.
