What is The EPIC Advantage?

Earlham is one of only a handful of colleges and universities in the United States to offer funded internships and research experiences to all students. These opportunities often take place during junior and senior years, and funding may include travel expenses. The program is a key component of the Earlham Plan for Integrative Collaboration (EPIC) and is a permanent feature of the Earlham Experience.

About the Donors

The EPIC Advantage is powered by a $7.5 million leadership from Alan ’74 and Peg Kral Scantland ’74, of Columbus, Ohio. The Scantlands have chosen to honor these life-changing experiences through their philanthropy. Their gift is to be used for personalized vocational mentoring, career-discerning internships and highly-focused student research projects.

How Does It Work?

Earlham provides all interested students access to The EPIC Advantage. While this opportunity can easily be tailored to the interests and needs of individual students, the program is focused on creating and funding highly focused internships and research opportunities. The College is committed to providing students with choice of opportunities on campus, across the United States, and in other countries. Earlham will also provide expert advising to help students secure appropriate placements related to the students’ academic interests and career aspirations.
