Boost for scholars – Part of $250M drive

Davidson College is getting a $28 million gift from Charlotte civic and business leader John M. Belk.

The gift will expand the John Montgomery Belk Scholarship, a merit-based program for academically talented student leaders established by Belk in 1994.

The scholarship provides each student with room, board, tuition and fees and grants for internships and international study.

The Belk gift comes during Davidson’s $250 million capital campaign, which includes a $100 million goal for student financial aid.
