The Micah Fellows Program admits 12-15 incoming freshmen each year. Applicants must have a minimum ACT score of 26 or SAT-I score of 1260. Strong candidates will also have a 3.50 overall high school GPA. Preference is given to applicants who have completed rigorous coursework in high school alongside demonstrated interest and practice of service. In addition to cadre-style classes exploring the ideas of justice, mercy, and humility, the Micah Fellows Program places each student in an intentional service partnership with a Birmingham organization.
All students in the Micah Fellows Program will complete six (6) cadre-style courses on justice, mercy, and humility. In addition, they will take a Micah Fellows section of UFVI 101 - The Virtues (2) during the first semester of their freshman year. Co-curricularly, Micah Fellows are expected to participate in a freshman-year service immersion spring break, a summer international service experience after their junior year, and weekly service with their Birmingham volunteer placement starting their sophomore year.
All Micah Fellows must begin the program in the fall semester of their freshman year. For more information, see the Micah Fellows website: www.samford.edu/go/micah.
