Grant Summary

$300,000 over 42 months to Elon University to implement all of the components of the Knowledge for Freedom programs, including a rigorous academic seminar, college application support, and an opportunity to return to campus during the year to complete a public service project. Elon also brings unique assets to the model. Freedom Scholars will be embedded in the newly approved Classical Studies major, which will now offer a required course to undergraduate teaching assistants before the summer seminar. Freedom Scholars is also designing an intensive leadership training program for the high school students.
