2019 marked the 25th anniversary of Scholarship Sewanee, the university’s annual celebration of student scholarship, research, and creativity. Scholarship Sewanee began in 1994 as “Scientific Sewanee,” a half-day poster session held at the end of the spring semester. In its early years, approximately 40 posters affiliated with the sciences were on display.

Scholarship Sewanee 2023 was held on Friday, April 28, featuring 83 posters and 62 oral presentations representing anthropology, art, biology, physics, chemistry, earth and environmental systems, neuroscience, psychology, politics, economics, English, history, visual arts, women's and gender studies and more. The program schedule may be accessed here.

In 2024, Scholarship Sewanee will be held on Friday, April 26. The McCrady lecture will be given by Dr. Anne Gulick, Associate Professor of English and Director of the Comparative Literature Program at the University of South Carolina. Her talk will be on students, global literature, and the idea of the university.
