The Jack Davis Scholarship is awarded annually to the most outstanding all-round North Shore secondary school graduate to assist in his or her entering the University of British Columbia. It was established to commemorate the many contributions of the late Honourable Jack Davis, P.C., to Canada and British Columbia.
Best known for the 27 years he represented North Shore constituents, at both the federal and provincial levels, Jack Davis was also an all-round student. His high grades, impressive athletic achievements, and leadership positions in student organizations earned him scholarships to U.B.C. and ultimately a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford in 1939. The Applicant selected each year to receive The Jack Davis Scholarship is the individual who best demonstrates the ability to follow the example of this outstanding well-rounded public-minded Canadian. The student selected this year will receive approximately $4,000 to be used for entry to U.B.C.
It is hoped that a Jack Davis Scholar would come to esteem the performance of public duties as the highest aim. Financial need gives no special claim to The Jack Davis Scholarship. The Jack Davis Scholarship may be received in addition to any other scholarships, awards or bursaries the student may have received. No Applicant shall be qualified or disqualified on account of race or religious opinions.
