Lafayette EXCEL Scholars Program

The Lafayette EXCEL Scholars Program enables students to participate in academically meaningful experiences outside the classroom. Students selected for this program engage in collaborative research projects with Lafayette faculty, enhancing their academic skills as well as developing other skills which will be useful in post-graduate education and careers.

EXCEL Scholars have the opportunity to work full time for ten weeks during the summer; full time for three weeks during the Interim Session; and eight to ten hours per week during the academic year.

Students selected to the EXCEL Scholars Program receive a stipend of $8 to $10 per hour and residence hall housing during the interim and summer sessions.
