The CATL Scholars Program
The CATL Scholars Fellowship program fosters innovative and scholarly teaching and learning. Echoing the Elon Teacher-Scholar statement, the CATL Scholars program is designed so that participants both engage deeply with the shared goals of our academic community and develop “the unique gifts” that each individual Scholar possesses.
Each CATL Scholar is awarded a two-year fellowship that includes
- compensation for two course teaching reassignments per year, or the equivalent amount of funding to be applied to the Scholar project or toward a summer stipend, and
- a $2500 faculty development fund per year to be used to pay for expenses relating to the CATL Scholar’s project.

All full-time teaching faculty at Elon are eligible to apply.
Applicants must ensure that Scholar compensation will not affect the recipient’s status as a full-time teaching faculty member, as defined by the Elon Faculty Handbook. (see Section II-2, “Minimum Teaching Expectation”). Scholar applicants who cannot take course reassignments may apply funds toward other project expenses or a summer stipend.
If you have questions about eligibility, please contact Deandra Little.
CATL Scholar applications are due early in the fall semester. Each year, between 1-3 new CATL Scholars are named.
Each CATL Scholar will have two core responsibilities:
- To undertake an ambitious teaching and learning initiative or SoTL project that the Scholar proposes;
- To work collaboratively with other Scholars.
CATL Scholar applications are due by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 15, 2017.
