The Dana Scholars Program, made possible by the Charles A. Dana Foundation, acknowledges students who display academic potential, good character, integrity, and leadership ability through contributions both inside and outside of the classroom.
The Dana Program offers outstanding, intellectually versatile students an opportunity to belong to a community of scholars that promotes engaged citizenship and leadership, fosters conversations across disciplines, and pursues rigorous academic inquiry. Each Dana scholar can major in any academic department or program. Over the course of four years, Dana scholars participate in shared seminars, independent research projects, and unique internship experiences. All Dana seniors engage in collaborative research projects on issues of public concern and interest.
