PACE Program

Providing Aid Through Campus Employment

Imagine working in a physical therapy lab as a first-year student. Or helping to keep Elon's Spanish Center running smoothly. Maybe you're the ideal candidate to organize statistics about college access for the Elon Academy. Better yet -- imagine working in one of these positions (or any number of others) as a means to help pay your tuition.

Elon's PACE program, which began in fall 2011, was created to help talented students for whom campus employment will pivotally impact their ability to attend Elon. Students in the program will be matched with part-time jobs in campus departments or programs and are guaranteed a campus job with earnings of up to $3,000 per academic year. Not only will these jobs provide additional income, they are also designed to create meaningful work experiences.

Not sure how to go about finding a job? No problem.

When you arrive in the fall, you'll work with René Jackson, coordinator of the PACE program, to review the PACE job registry and select positions for which you would like to apply.

Students eligible to apply for the program will be identified through the financial aid process and will then be invited to submit an application. Instructions and a link to the application will be included with the financial aid award package.  The program is restricted to incoming first-year students, but once accepted into the PACE program, students are eligible to remain in the program for their four years at Elon.
