SPDC Career Advising Fellowship
The fellowship positions are posted on the Elon University Employment Site (staff positions) in February. The position will close early March and selections are made by end of April.
The Career Advising Fellowship program is a full-time, 10-month position available to recent graduates of master’s programs such as higher education or counseling. Each fellow is paid $1,500/ per month and is provided with free on-campus apartment accommodations as well as a campus meal plan. Also, Fellows are granted funds for professional development and opportunities for personal and professional growth such as assessment training, local conferences, and if selected, the opportunity to participate in service learning programs such as Elon’s domestic and international alternative break trips. The fellowship begins the first week in August (the first month is dedicated solely to training) and concludes in May.
Please note: health insurance is not provided by Elon University for the fellowship.
The individuals selected for these fellowship positions will assist in all aspects of the SPDC’s operation, including, but not limited to:

- Co-teaching Elon’s innovative one-hour credit Transition Strategies course that focuses on preparing students for their professional life after college.
