Warming Up This Summer at the Elizabeth Edwards Foundation

This summer has been a time of great excitement and growth here at the Elizabeth Edwards Foundation as we prepare to welcome our first class of Elizabeth Fellows in the Fall! Many different facets of the Elizabeth Fellows program are coming together quickly, so we wanted to keep you up-to-date as the first year of our program kicks off. 

The beginning of the academic year will mark the start of the pilot Elizabeth Fellows program at Broughton High School in Raleigh, North Carolina.  We’ve been working with various educators at Broughton, who have each provided us a lot of support by recommending students who may be right for our program.  We are looking for bright students facing challenges who, with the right support, will reach their full academic potential, set and meet important personal goals, and mature into empowered leaders in their communities.

With the application packets now finalized, nominated students will receive them and choose to apply as part of a thorough process to be selected as an Elizabeth Fellow.  Applicants will be chosen based on a range of variables, including their responses to short and long essay questions as well as recommendations.  Once chosen, the students will start the program in early Fall and begin their exciting journey as Elizabeth Fellows.
