About Our Programming

Scholar Chats

DDWSF Scholar Chats provide a regular opportunity for Wilson Fund Scholars to come together in fellowship and share experiences, questions, ideas and hopes regarding various topics of their own choosing. This past fall’s series included conversations such as Advocacy & Activism on Campus and Mental Health During a Pandemic.


PATHS, a special DDWSF Scholar Chat, brings together Wilson Fund Scholars and experienced professionals from educational & career paths directly related to their interests, majors, and intended career pursuits. Scholars are afforded the opportunity to have 1:1 time with professionals as well as to ask questions of every expert in attendance. Our volunteer professionals field inquiries about internships, grad school, resumes, current employment realities and more. 

The Exchange Series

Founded in 2020 thanks to Wilson Fund Scholar interest & leadership, the DDWSF Exchange is a panel series designed to foster open community dialogues and promote the sharing of ideas, experiences and knowledge in service to the community. 

These events expose our scholars and larger community to a cornucopia of ideas and incredible people, while always providing our scholars with the platform to lead. We hope you’ll join the conversation.
