About the Experiential Learning Scholars Program

The Experiential Learning Scholars Program (ELSP) is designed to enhance students’ academic coursework with pertinent, real-life experiences that take learning to an entirely new level. ELSP students combine service learning, undergraduate research, community engagement, internships, and leadership development into a unique, individualized honors experience.

Based on the outstanding success of this pilot program, the UAB Honors College now incorporates experiential learning for all honors students. Because experiential learning has been expanded to include all of our students, we are no longer accepting applications for this program. However, the ELSP ethos of integrating coursework with experiential learning lives on in the UAB Honors College.

ELSP alumni can be proud to have piloted such an exceptional program, which has made a lasting imprint on the UAB Honors College.
