Discover Davidson Abroad

Discover Davidson Abroad

Twice a year, the OEAA invites some of our most popular partner organizations to campus to talk to students and answer questions about education abroad and away.  Usually held outside by the Chambers flagpole, this is a great chance for students to learn more about their program options!  Students should also be on the lookout for information sessions about Davidson programs.

Gilman Workshop

Gilman Scholarship Workshop

The Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship is an important opportunity for students receiving the Pell Grant.  Join OEAA staff each semester for an interactive workshop which will answer your questions and provide guidance on preparing a competitive application to this exciting program.

Time to Unpack: Study Abroad Reentry & Career Development

A joint initiative of the OEAA and the Betty and B. Frank Matthews II ’49 Center for Career Development, this student-centered workshop provides returned study abroad participants with a chance to reflect upon their time away and learn how to leverage their experiences on their resumes and in interviews for jobs or graduate school.  A must for anyone seeking to maximize the impact of their program and stand out from the crowd!


Alumni Panels

Alumni Panels

The OEAA frequently arranges alumni panels of returned students so they can share their experiences with the campus community.  Topics may range from general study abroad to more focused topics such as identity abroad, mental health, scholarship applications, internships, and more.
