This year the WVU Davis College celebrated its 150th anniversary. On Feb. 7, 1867, the State founded WVU as its land-grant university – and the Davis College served as its first academic unit.
With nearly 2,500 undergraduate and graduate students, we are proud of our rich heritage and tradition. We work hard every day to inspire the next generation of thinkers and doers in the broad fields of agriculture, natural resources and design.
Why we need your support
We pride ourselves on our small-school environment and high-quality undergraduate education – while offering all of the resources of a large university.
We’re more than a college – we’re a community.
And we believe in providing support for our students and faculty to achieve that margin of excellence that separates our college from all the rest.
Your generosity provides the momentum we need to transform lives and create incredible opportunities for students. Thanks to support from people like you, last year we awarded more than a $500,000 in scholarships to 225 students and about $20,000 to 26 students to attend conferences and develop research.
How you can help
- Greatest Needs
Giving to the Dean’s Opportunity Fund is the best way to support us on the Day of Giving. This fund allows the dean the flexibility to help in all areas — from research to scholarships, to specific student and faculty needs, to other opportunities that advance our land-grant mission.
This fund provides scholarships to a broad range of students who may not otherwise be covered, including students with emergency scholarship needs.
