The Engaged Learning Fellowship (ELF) is an undergraduate student's SMU legacy work. The student engages in capstone-level scholarly research, community service or civic engagement, professional internship, or other creative project that moves learning beyond the classroom.
SMU funds ELFs up to $2000 per project and records ELF titles on student transcripts and commencement booklets
Who's it for?
for students ready to take on big projects that link together their passion, education and personal goals
Students typically begin their fellowship sophomore or junior year and complete it the semester of their graduation. To complete a fellowship, students are required to bring their work to an end point, present their findings in a public forum, and turn in a final product of their accomplishment.
