The Office of Fellowships connects Davidson students and recent alumni to world-renowned fellowships and scholarships, including the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, Goldwater Scholarship, Watson Fellowship, Rhodes Scholarship and more. 

We approach each application process as a learning opportunity with the potential to be a formative experience, helping candidates articulate their strengths, refine their goals, and envision their lives of leadership and service.

Current Davidson students and recent alumni can schedule an appointment for general advising, fellowship application material review, and mock interviews.
