Our curriculum balances breadth with depth, building academic specialization upon a liberal arts foundation in the arts, the sciences, the social sciences and the humanities. Responsive to new ways of learning, we continue to develop interdisciplinary integration of the many forms of knowledge. While our students pursue specialized learning in their chosen majors, they also develop the framework for an integrated intellectual life, spiritually and morally informed.
The Director and Associate Director of the Gilpatrick Center for Student Research and Fellowships assist students in identifying and applying for appropriate national and international scholarships at both the undergraduate and graduate level. These include the Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford, the Marshall Scholarship, the Fulbright Scholarship, the Harry S. Truman Scholarship, the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship in Science and Mathematics, the Morris K. Udall Scholarship in National Environmental Policy, National Science Foundation Fellowships, DAAD (German Academic Exchange) grants, and many others. Denison is proud of its many students and alumni who have won such awards. To inform students about this service, the Gilpatrick Center staff sponsor information sessions, proposal writing workshops, and curriculum vitae assistance throughout the year. While some awards have a GPA requirement, many do not, and the College encourages all interested students to attend these sessions.
A partial listing of national and international scholarships can be found at Student Research ↪. New scholarship listings are added on a regular basis.
