Davidson College Education Scholars

This campaign ended on March 31, 2017, but you can still make a gift to Davidson College by clicking here!

For nine-weeks during the summer months, eight Education Scholars work with local public and nonprofit partners in and around the Charlotte education system.  Through their immersive, project-based internships, community living, and shared readings, each intern has the opportunity to explore and analyze the complex issues in education at various levels and through different perspectives.  Education Scholars engage with organizations and people to learn how they work to provide high quality and equitable education for all students.  They are challenged to directly address pressing and current problems in the K12 system, while also thinking critically about the future of education and how it could or should function. In addition to immersing in their sites and projects, Education Scholars meet weekly to discuss readings that pertain to public education in Charlotte and nationwide.  These discussions provide a space for students to think critically, learn from each other, voice their insights, and form opinions based on facts and experiences. 

Through this experience, it is our goal that Education Scholars are able to translate classroom learning to applied projects, develop useful skills, and better understand their talents and interests in light of community needs. 

We hope that you will consider making a gift to support a Davidson Education Scholar next summer.  Our campaign goal is $5,000 which covers one Education Scholar’s summer stipend, housing, and some transportation costs.  If we reach our goal of $5,000 an anonymous donor will fund an additional Education Scholar for this cohort!
