Teaching Fellows Program Benefits


Twenty Teaching Fellows will receive scholarships valued at $5,500, which are renewable annually as long as the student remains a Fellow in good standing. This is in addition to any Presidential or Elon Engagement scholarship received.

American History Study Tour:

This popular Winter Term event takes first-year Fellows on a bus tour of historic East Coast cities such as Philadelphia and Boston to deepen their knowledge of U.S. history.

Semester in England or Costa Rica:

Sophomore Fellows intern at an education related agency and take General Studies courses taught by Elon and native faculty. Elon provides airfare and Fellows pay no extra tuition, but are responsible for paying associated study abroad fees.

Foreign language majors will study for a semester in a country appropriate to their language study.

Leadership Seminar at the Washington Center:

Junior Fellows spend Winter Term in Washington, D.C., to explore the inner workings of the federal government and learn how to become leaders in education.
