Scholar Chats

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 included conversations such as Advocacy & Activism on Campus and Mental Health During a Pandemic. Whether currently in-person or engaged in remote learning, all scholar voices and experiences welcome.

College Q&A

In May 2020, enrolled Wilson Fund Undergraduate Scholars came to the (virtual) table to answer any and all questions on the minds of our 2020 David & Dovetta Wilson Scholarship Recipients. This remarkable panel of Wilson Fund Scholars and volunteers covered a range of topics, including time management, self advocacy, faith, and navigating college in the face of a national pandemic.

Internships 101

DDWSF is so grateful for the many guest professionals who dedicated their time to share expertise and insight.

For the first time in Fall 2020, DDWSF was proud to host a special Scholar Chat – Internships 101. This event brought together Wilson Fund Scholars and experienced professionals from educational & career paths directly related to their interests, majors, and intended career pursuits. Scholars were afforded the opportunity to have 1:1 time with professionals as well as to ask questions of every expert in attendance. Our volunteer professionals fielded inquiries about internships, grad school, resumes, current employment realities and more. 

The Exchange

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.
