EPIC Advantage-Funded Summer Programs

About EPIC Advantage-Funded Summer Programs

In addition to the semester options for off-campus study, Earlham students also have the option to use your one instance of EPIC Advantage funding to participate in faculty-led summer program. Programs are intended to allow for intensive, short-term immersion in a particular cultural and geographical setting. Options include both community projects and research experiences.

Quick Facts:

  • EPIC Advantage Summer Programs are led by one or more Earlham faculty members.
  • Programs are offered in the summer, either during May Term or during the months of June, July and/or August.
  • Most programs are three or four weeks, though a few are shorter.
  • Participants may earn credit or enroll in the zero-credit option. Shorter programs may be offered for 1 or 2 credits, while 3- and 4-week programs will be offered for 3 credits.
  • Courses are offered credit/no credit only.
  • Students who also plan to participate in a semester or academic-year off-campus program are still eligible to participate in this model, as all Earlhamites are promised one EPIC Advantage-funded opportunity.
  • For your EPIC Advantage-funded opportunity, you will choose between summer programs or internships.
  • Selection is competitive, as most programs have a limited number of spots available.
