Scholarships & Program Benefits

AlyssaWith national and state Teachers of the Year among Elon's graduates, the university is well known for its outstanding teacher education curriculum.

As a Fellow, you will be challenged by enriching experiences and a curriculum that is distinguished by many features:

  • Get real classroom experience early and often -- as a first-year student, you will begin observing veteran teachers in local schools.
  • During Winter Term, you'll travel by charter bus up and down the East Coast to visit socially, culturally and historically important sites. Explore cities such as Boston and Philadelphia.
  • Study in England or Costa Rica (or an appropriate country if you're a foreign language major) for a semester to gain a global view of education and work with students from a variety of backgrounds.
  • Learn from supportive faculty mentors who will challenge and inspire you to become a leader in education.

Who should apply?

Outstanding students who have a GPA of at least 3.7, and have a combined critical reading, math and writing SAT score of 1900 (ACT 28) or higher should consider applying. Twenty Teaching Fellows will be selected annually.

Note: Music education majors must also complete a department audition in conjunction with their admission to Elon.
