Providing Aid Through Campus Employment

Would having a job on campus make a difference for you and in your ability to attend Elon? The PACE program, which began in fall 2011, was created to help talented students for whom campus employment will pivotally impact their ability to attend Elon. Students in the program are given access to part-time jobs in campus departments or programs and are guaranteed a campus job with earnings of up to $3,000 per academic year. Not only do these jobs provide additional income, they are also designed to create meaningful work experiences. The program is restricted to incoming first-year students, but once accepted into the PACE program, students are eligible to remain in the program for their four years at Elon.

Students eligible to apply for the program will be automatically identified through the financial aid process and will then be invited to submit an application for consideration.  The invitation to apply will be delivered to the student’s Elon email account in early May. Instructions and a link to the application will be found in the student’s OnTrack account, under the “Financial Aid” heading labeled “PACE.”  

For important details about the PACE program, including how eligibility is determined and what you need to know if you are invited to apply for a spot in the program, please visit our FAQ page. You are invited to view the short videos below to hear about some of the experiences of current PACE students. If you have further questions, you may email the program director, Mrs. René Jackson, at
