Freddye T. Davy Scholarship

The NCHC Diversity committee is pleased to offer the Freddye T. Davy Student Scholarship to help students attend the NCHC Annual Conference. Dr. Davy served as the Honors Director at Hampton University until her passing in 2012. Among her many distinctions, she was the founder and executive director of the National W. E. B. Du Bois Honor Society and an active member of the National Association of African American Honors Programs. Dr. Davy was recognized in 2012 by the National Collegiate Honors Council as an NCHC Fellow.

To honor her memory, four qualified students, nominated by the Directors of their honors program or college and selected by the NCHC Diversity committee, will receive $1,000 scholarships to aid in registration, hotel, and travel costs to attend the NCHC Annual Conference. Preference will be given to minority applicants.

We trust that the Freddye T. Davy Scholarship represents an important step in ensuring that deserving, underserved students get the quality academic experience needed to address and encourage their participation in both their educational communities and in the communities they will be part of long after graduation.

2020 Award Adjustments

Because the NCHC Annual Conference will not take place in Dallas in 2020, the recipients of the 2020 Freddye T. Davy Scholarship will receive $1,000 each to use toward the costs of an honors event or activity that will honor the award's spirit of participation in the educational community. This could be a regional conference, a local educational event, etc. The recipients will also be recognized by NCHC as part of a Virtual Awards Ceremony this fall.
