Quaker Fellows echoes Earlham's core values. Utilizing Quaker faith and practice, the program engages the whole person and prepares students to be agents of change in the world. Quaker Fellows includes three formation cores: spirituality, community, and leadership development. The program is designed for young adults who are serious about serving as leaders in their communities, developing tools for social transformation, and living a life grounded in the Spirit. Quaker Fellows requires a time commitment of approximately 6 hours per week of programming and is available to qualified Quaker students for the duration of their time at Earlham (with required re-enrollment each year based on academic standing).
