Creative and Scholarly Endeavors Program

The Creative and Scholarly Endeavors (CASE) program is a unique opportunity open to current Elmhurst College students.

As a CASE fellow, you will spend the summer working on a scholarly or creative project with the close guidance of a faculty mentor. CASE fellows receive a stipend and participate in variety of intellectual and social events over the course of the program.

Program Highlights

The program begins in May with a short kick-off meeting for all CASE fellows and concludes in September at the CASE Showcase. During the fellowship, students will have frequent meetings with their faculty mentor, attend the weekly CASE seminar and lunch, and attend periodic workshops and social events.

At the conclusion of the four- or eight-week program, students will practice their presentations for the fall CASE Showcase to be held in September 2018. In addition, CASE fellows will submit abstracts to Investigations and a final product to Constellation (our institutional repository).

Though it is not required, students may choose to live on campus for the duration of the program at no cost.
