Because the world demands courage, creativity and fresh ways forward 

With a distinctive focus on collaboration and hands-on learning – including the offer of funded internships or research opportunities for every student – Earlham College prepares graduates for lives of purpose and accomplishment

What brings students to Earlham? For starters, a world class faculty. Earlham is known for its unusually strong commitment to undergraduate teaching. Earlham professors are scholars who teach. 

Students and professors work side by side everywhere from classrooms and labs to rain forests and glaciers. A large percentage of Earlham professors also include students in their research on some of the important challenges facing the world today, often leading to co-authored publications.

Our collaborative approach to learning means that our graduates are exceptionally well prepared to connect with others from different backgrounds, lead diverse groups and build strong personal networks. And from the day they step on campus, students engage with a team of advisors who will know them well and help them prepare for success after graduation.

EPIC: A distinctive approach 

Earlham has shaped its curriculum through an initiative called EPIC. EPIC is a series of transformative educational experiences like study abroad, summer research experiences, team-based projects, internships and extracurricular activities. Whatever career you are getting ready for, EPIC was designed to give you the best sort of collegiate preparation and to stand out as a graduate.

Funded research or internship: A key component of this initiative is the EPIC Advantage, Earlham’s commitment to fund an internship or research experience for every student. Funding generally ranges from $3000-$5000 for EPIC Advantage internships, for example.

An uncommon campus experience

Earlham is a residential college of about 1,100 students, and its beautiful campus is located on 800 acres in the city of Richmond, Indiana. It is about an hour’s drive from Indianapolis, Cincinnati or Dayton. 

International students thrive at Earlham and make up approximately 21% of the total student body. Our dynamic campus includes more than 200 international students, faculty, and language assistants from more than 60 countries.

Founded by Quakers, Earlham has prepared students to contribute to peace and the social good since its inception. The College welcomes those of all faiths and embraces cultural and individual differences. Earlham's lively and accepting community provides rich opportunities for leadership, friendship and community.


Graduates from the past five years have earned such prestigious awards as the Rhodes Scholarship, Fulbright Scholarship, the Watson Fellowship, the National Science Foundation Pre-Doctoral Fellowship, the Samuel Huntington Public Service Award, and a Fellowship at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. 

Of all colleges and universities in the U.S., Earlham also ranks in the top 2 percent for its percentage of graduates who go on to earn research doctorates, a distinction that demonstrates both the level of academic quality and mentoring at Earlham.
