The Mosaic Award is offered to students who bring to Elizabethtown an important perspective on the many aspects of diversity, as demonstrated by their experiences and activities. The hope and expectation is that Mosaic Award winners will continue to contribute to the fostering of Inclusive Excellence at Elizabethtown College.
All applicants to Elizabethtown are considered for the award. Granted for all four years the student attends Elizabethtown, the award ranges from $3,000 to $5,000 per year. The selection process is based upon the following standard of excellence:
Mosaic Scholars have demonstrated a commitment to valuing and fostering the diversity reflected in their lives and in the bigger world. They have sought opportunities to both seek and provide perspective in conversations of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religion, ability, gender, gender identity and expression, age, and national origin.
During their first year, Mosaic Award winners are required to meet twice per semester with a Mosaic Adviser. These meetings are designed to identify opportunities for sharing perspectives on issues of diversity and inclusive excellence, as well as encouraging involvement in leadership roles throughout the campus community.
