2018 Newman Civic Fellowship Nomination Cycle

Nominations for the 2018 Newman Civic Fellowship are due by 11:59 PM EST on February 1, 2018.

Please Note:

  • Nominee must be currently enrolled at a Campus Compact member institution (nominee must be enrolled and attending your institution during spring 2018)
  • Nominee must be nominated by the president or chancellor of their institution
  • Each institution may nominate only one student
  • For institutions with both undergraduate and graduate programs, presidents and chancellors are encouraged to recommend the most deserving student, with preference given to undergraduate students
  • In keeping with Frank Newman’s passion for educational access, we encourage presidents and chancellors to give preference to students from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in higher education
  • Nominee must have at least one year of their education remaining (either at their current institution or at a different one) such that the nominee will be enrolled in higher education for the duration of the 2018-2019 academic year
  • Nominees must commit to providing a short reflection piece (video, article, or letter format) to Campus Compact during their fellowship year
  • Nominee’s institution must commit to helping the nominee identify a local mentor for the duration of the fellowship

The Newman Civic Fellowship is intended to honor the leadership legacy of Frank Newman by recognizing community-committed students who:

  • Engage in collaborative action with others from campus or from surrounding communities in order to create long-term social change
  • Take action in addressing issues of inequality and political polarization
  • Demonstrate the motivation and potential for effective long-term civic engagement
