The Education Fellows Program provides an integrated academic and experiential opportunity for students who demonstrate exemplary potential and a desire to impact the education profession. The four-year experience focuses on the themes of connection, engagement, challenge and leadership. It supports fellows as they work together in common courses to co-design innovative solutions to educational challenges that are manifested in schools and communities. Opportunities for undergraduate research, professional development and mentorship from faculty and experts within the field are key components of the Education Fellows Program.
Students in the Education Fellows Program have unique opportunities to:
- Take select education courses as a cohort
- Participate in special fellows-only seminars
- Provide service to local schools and the community
- Develop as content creators and pedagogical experts
- Travel to unique educational models within the Southeast
- Be mentored by students in High Point University’s Doctor of Education program
Successful applicants to the Education Fellows Program will have a declared major or licensure area in the Stout School of Education and have a passion for education. Previous work with children or youth, club and organization leadership, educational shadowing or other related experience will be an advantage for applicants. The program is highly selective and is limited to the top twenty-five incoming education students in each entering class.
To be considered for membership into the Education Fellows Program, you must first submit your High Point University application for admission. The Education Fellowship Program is available to students who plan to major in Education or complete one of the licensure areas.
Then, please complete your Education Fellows application through your PantherPage by February 1 for priority applicants, and by March 1 for all others.
Education Fellows will receive a $3,000 scholarship renewable annually based on academic performance and continued participation in the program. This is in addition to any Presidential or High Point Scholarship. Fellows must meet GPA and professionalism requirements to be awarded continuation of their fellowship into the next academic year.
