The Elon Fellows programs are selective, four-year programs that offer academically talented students exciting advantages like special courses, guaranteed internships, paid research assistantships, faculty mentoring, grants for study abroad and Fellows scholarships.
Presidential Scholarships of $6,000 annually are awarded to approximately the top 25 percent of entering first-year students each year. The awards are based on high school course selection, class rank, grades and SAT/ACT scores. No separate application is needed. Scholarships are automatically awarded to students who meet the necessary criteria when the completed admissions application is reviewed. Presidential Scholarships are renewable each year pending acceptable academic performance.
