The Fellowships and Scholarships Program connects students and recent alumni to an array of prestigious and world-renowned fellowships and scholarships, including the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, Thomas J. Watson Fellowship, Rhodes Scholarship, and more.

Led by key faculty advisers, the program works to identify potential student scholars, offer one-on-one advising and coordinate educational workshops and information sessions, to guide applicants through the processes from start to finish.

Every fellowship and scholarship is unique, but what most people do not realize is that there are opportunities for all class years, including alumni, and all disciplines. Students are encouraged to begin exploring opportunities early in their first or second year at Davidson.

The Fellowships & Scholarships Program is a facet of the Center for Career Development.

Students or alumni interested in learning more are invited to attend an informational session (login required) or schedule a one-on-one appointment (login required). For more information, you may also contact
