Five Communications Fellows will receive scholarships valued at $5,500 and are renewable annually as long as the student remains a Fellow in good standing. This is in addition to any Presidential Scholarship received.
This final project may include original research, investigation of a media or communications topic, or a performance presentation in your area of interest.
All Communications Fellows receive a $1,000 grant to a university-approved study abroad or Study USA experience.
Fellows are often invited to work on special projects for the School of Communications, such as a recent documentary project examining coverage of the Civil Rights Movement. Fellows also participate in news conferences and Q&A sessions with the high-profile speakers that Elon brings to campus. Recent speakers include anchor and managing editor of NBC Nightly News Brian Williams, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper; journalist and political analyst David Gergen, who served as an adviser to four U.S. presidents; and New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, a three-time recipient of the Pulitzer Prize.
