International Fellows spend four years creating their own American experience through travel and immersive cultural experiences. Faculty mentors will guide your journey as you learn about the influences that have shaped this nation.
All eligible students will be considered for this program based on their first-year admissions application.
First-year students who are non-U.S. citizens or dual citizens (students who hold U.S. citizenship and citizenship in another country) will be considered for this program.
Dual citizens must have completed the majority of schooling outside the U.S., including all secondary/high school years and preferably in a non-English based curriculum. Students must also plan to enroll at Elon full-time and pursue a bachelor's degree.
Ideal candidates will have a strong academic record in a rigorous curriculum and an SAT score of 1700 (ACT 25) or higher, or a TOEFL score of 80 or higher. For students in a non-English curriculum TOEFL or IELTS scores will be used in lieu of the SAT.
Selection is based on a student's academic record, undergraduate admissions application and admissions essay. Finalists will participate in an interview with a faculty member via telephone or Skype. Students will be notified in early April if they have been selected as a Fellow.
