The Committee on Graduate Scholarships and Fellowships, known as the Graduate Fellowships Committee is a standing appointive and elective committee of the College. Its members advise students on their fellowship and scholarship applications, help students plan their studies after Davidson, administer nominations for some graduate fellowships and scholarship competitions, hold mock interviews, read and respond to draft application essays, and generally lend a hand during the often trying and always challenging application process for things like Rhodes Scholarships, Marshall Scholarships, National Science Foundation Grants, Fulbright Grants, Luce Scholarships, Goldwater Scholarships, Mitchell Fellowships, the Davidson College Smith Scholarship, among others. The committee seeks to identify early in their Davidson careers students who are likely candidates for graduate fellowships and scholarships and holds occasional information sessions to for these students.
The VPAA’s office and Graduate Fellowships Committee members offer some specific information on several Graduate Fellowships and Scholarships of interest to Davidson students (e.g. Marshall, Rhodes, Gates Trust, Luce, Watson, Smith). This list includes some pre-graduate fellowships (e.g. Goldwater, Beinecke, Truman).
