Elon College Fellows

Benefits of being an Elon College Fellow

Be part of a special intellectual community of faculty and students in which you will be challenged to reach your full potential while at Elon.

Form close associations with other Fellows, with the Fellows Directors and with other faculty, both in and out of the classroom.

Take classes that make you think in different ways and that prepare you to begin your Fellows Project. Most students say that their Fellows classes help them perform better in their other classes.

Enjoy a two-year mentorship with a faculty member in your chosen major. You will pursue a special study in your major and complete a Fellows Project.

Learn from and enjoy other Fellows opportunities such as colloquia; a five-day trip to Washington, D.C.; and socials and celebrations.

Have your first-year residence in the Elon College Fellows Living Learning Community located in the Academic Village. This community offers special academic, social and personal development opportunities for new students.

Use a $1,000 Elon College Fellows study abroad grant to support a study abroad experience.

Apply for funding to support your Fellows Project.

Receive an Elon College Fellows academic scholarship. Beginning with the entering first-year class of 2019, all Elon College Fellows will receive scholarships valued at $5,500 annually. This is in addition to any $6,000 Presidential Scholarship awarded, which is renewable as long as the student remains a Fellow in good standing. Total scholarship award potential is $11,500 annually, or $46,000 over four years. In addition, Elon College Fellows who plan to attend medical school may apply for Jane M.
