How should I decide which program(s) to apply for?

The Fellows Programs are primarily school-based, so you should be planning to major in one of the fields contained within the school sponsoring the Fellows Program. The exceptions is Leadership Fellows, which is for students in any major. Students who are undecided about a major typically apply to Elon College Fellows because of the breadth of majors offered in the arts and sciences.

How many programs may I apply for?

Students may apply for one school-based program and Leadership Fellows. However, you may participate in only one Fellows program. You may not apply to two programs based in different schools because you are required to major in one of the fields within a school. For example, you may not apply to both the Communications Fellows and the Business Fellows because they are in two different schools. Because Isabella Cannon Leadership Fellows programs is not school-based, you may apply to it or in combination with a school-based program.

What happens after I apply?

All Fellows applications are reviewed after January 15. Finalists for each program are selected by faculty committees. If you are a finalist, you will be invited on February 1 to interview with faculty. If you have not already received an admissions decision through the Early Decision or Early Action deadlines, you will be notified of your admissions status at the time the Fellows invitation is extended. From these finalists, Fellows are selected and notified April 1.
