The Africana Studies Major at Davidson
The Africana Studies major is dedicated to the critical examination of the experience of people of whole or partial African descent whether they are in Africa, the United States, the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe or other places around the world.
The Africana Studies Department requires 10 courses for the completion of the major. We highly recommend that students begin their study with AFR 101.
Fellowships are competitive awards and programs that provide funding and other resources for meaningful immersive work, like research, teaching, or service. Like scholarships, fellowships can also support academic study.
These featured fellowships support a variety of experiences in and outside of the U.S. Interested candidates should contact Davidson’s Office of Fellowships to learn more about these fellowships and other programs.
