Each fellow is paid $2,000/ per month and is provided with free on-campus apartment accommodations as well as a campus meal plan.  Fellows are also granted funds for professional development and opportunities for personal and professional growth such as local conferences and development programs (e.g. NCACE Leadership Institute), 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.
