Scholarships & Program Benefits

PatrickAs an Elon College Fellow, you will join a community with a longstanding tradition of excellence in the arts and sciences. The program begins with an introduction to the primary academic areas in the arts and sciences.

During the four-year program, you can expect to:

  • Be part of a community of students and faculty who will support your intellectual and personal development.
  • Explore the major branches of the arts and sciences and learn to ask questions from multiple perspectives.
  • See the arts and sciences in action as you study in Washington, D.C., during Winter Term.
  • Take a team-taught seminar that will help you explore what it means to think and work as a professional as you focus your academic plans and choose a major.
  • Work with faculty mentors on creative, discovery-based projects that culminate in professional products, presentations or significant research and writing.
  • Be received into one of three specific discipline-based programs as an Arts and Humanities Fellow, a Social Science Fellow, or a Mathematical and Natural Sciences Fellow.
