Davies Fellowship

The Belk Chapel Davies Fellowship offers experiences for students who are committed to exploring religious and spiritual life at Queens and beyond. As Belk Chapel Davies Fellows, students learn in both academic and co-curricular (outside of the classroom) settings, serve as campus leaders, engage in community outreach, and reflect together on faith-based or philosophical values that shape their lives.
