Students are encouraged to start exploring fellowships and experiential learning in their first or second year at Davidson to diversify their personal and professional growth. 

The Matthews Center is one of the primary campus resources for any student seeking an experiential learning opportunity. We focus on helping students identify opportunities and programs through which they can establish skills and make connections through hands-on learning.
