The EPIC Advantage

Earlham offers every student a funded internship or research experience (including travel expenses, if necessary). This offer is virtually unparalleled in American higher education, and provides students with an opportunity to build their resumes without worrying about finances. Opportunities include small group off-campus experiences led by Earlham professors, student-faculty research experiences and individually designed internship.

Uncommonly Focused on the Social Good

We understand that our students want to make a positive different in the world. We also know that they sometimes aren’t sure how to get started. Earlham excels at helping students connect their academic interests with ways to help improve the world.

Preparing Morally Sensitive Leaders

An Earlham education is grounded in our five principles and practices: mutual respect, integrity, community, simplicity and a commitment to peace and social justice. We are committed to offering students many opportunities to live out these values, whether through volunteer service or entrepreneurial ventures.

Rewarding and Meaningful Lives

The Princeton Review’s “Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck,” celebrates Earlham for its exceptional academics, affordability and career prospects of its graduates.


A Welcoming and Inclusive Community

Earlham students gain an unusual sense of ownership of the campus experience by participating in campus governance and by immersing themselves in student activities. We offer a diverse community that inspires active involvement, offers support and encourages fun.

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts and sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
