2018 Newman Civic Fellowship
Now Accepting Nominations for the 2018 Newman Civic Fellowship
The nomination period is now open for the Newman Civic Fellowship, which recognizes community-committed students from Campus Compact member institutions. The Newman Civic Fellowship honors the late Frank Newman, one of Campus Compact’s founders and a tireless advocate for the civic engagement of higher education. You can learn more about the 2017 Newman Civic Fellows here.
In the spirit of Dr. Newman’s leadership, we are seeking nominations of undergraduate or graduate students who engage in collaborative action with others in order to create long-term social change, take action in addressing issues of inequality and political polarization, and demonstrate the motivation and potential for effective long-term civic engagement.
Each Campus Compact member president or chancellor can nominate one student to become a Newman Civic Fellow, who will then represent their institution in a national group of public problem solvers. The fellowship is a one-year experience, during which time fellows have access to learning opportunities, networking events, and mentoring. Through the fellowship, Campus Compact provides in-person and virtual learning opportunities focused on the skills fellows need to serve as effective agents of change in addressing public problems and in building equitable communities.
The online nomination form can be found here. Nominations will be accepted until 11:59 PM EST on February 1, 2018.
Questions about the nomination process can be directed to Michaela Grenier (firstname.lastname@example.org).
