Each year Earlham faculty have the ability to design exciting and engaging experiences in alignment with their expertise and student interest that allow small groups of faculty and students to travel to destinations around the world in pursuit of knowledge, practical experience, and adventure.
These opportunities are designed to give students real-world research and/or community-building experience that will prepare them for the next leg of their Epic Journey.
Earlham students who are rising sophomores, rising juniors, and rising seniors are eligible for one Epic Advantage experience. One option is to apply for a summer faculty-led research or community project experience. Note that Epic Advantage Independent Student Experiences have different eligibility requirements.
Students must complete an application, which is available via Terra Dotta. The date that the application opens will be announced at the beginning of each fall semester. After the applications are reviewed, the faculty leader(s) will conduct interviews for the program. Students may apply for one program.
