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 a variety of intellectual and social events over the course of the program.

Fellowship Options

  • CASE Summer Fellows
    • Eight weeks
    • Rising juniors and seniors
    • $3,000 stipend
  • CASE First-Year Scholars
    • Four weeks
    • Current first-year students
    • $1,000 stipend

Program Highlights

The program begins in May with a short kickoff meeting for all CASE students. 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 program, students will present their work at the fall CASE Showcase. 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.
