The mission of the Davidson Institute is to recognize, nurture and support profoundly intelligent young people and to provide opportunities for them to develop their talents to make a positive difference. The Davidson Alumni Program offers a variety of avenues in which Young Scholars (18 and older), Davidson Academy graduates, Davidson Fellows, and THINK Summer Institute alums, and their families, can stay connected and give back to the Davidson community. We hope to foster lifelong relationships among alumni, parents and students.
There are currently 1,954 Davidson Young Scholars alumni, ranging in age from 18-32. 290 Young Scholars have aged out and became alums in the past year (updated March 8, 2018).
Started in 1999, the Davidson Institute for Talent Development is a 501(c)3 private operating foundation. Our mission is to recognize, nurture and support profoundly intelligent young people ages 18 and under, and to provide opportunities for them to develop their talents to make a positive difference.
