Program Benefits


Honors Fellows receive a $13,500 scholarship renewable annually based on academic performance and participation in the program. This is in addition to a Presidential Scholarship of $6,000, bringing total scholarship funding to $19,500 each year, or $78,000 over four years. Each year, one Honors Fellows is selected as the William R. Kenan, Jr. Honors Fellow and receives a full tuition scholarship renewable annually.

Honors Fellows who plan to attend medical school may also apply for Jane Macon Baird Pre-medical Scholarships that provide an additional $4,000 per year. These scholarships are renewable annually, provided students meet the criteria for the scholarship. A special essay is required for consideration for the Baird Scholarships.

Elon Experiences and Research Grants:

All Honors Fellows receive a $1,000 grant to use for an approved Elon Experience of their choosing. Fellows may also submit proposals for grants to assist with research costs.

Housing and Mentoring Opportunities:

Special residential communities are available to Honors Fellows in Colonnades or in Elon's William R. Kenan Jr. Honors Pavilion in the Academic Village. Each new Honors Fellow is paired with a current Fellow who serves as a mentor.


Fellows attend selected cultural events on campus and participate in lively debates with their peers following the programs.
