Now seeking nominations for the 2023-2024 Newman Civic Fellowship

Nominate an outstanding community-committed student for the Newman Civic Fellowship by February 1.

We are now accepting nominations for the 2023-2024 Newman Civic Fellowship, a yearlong program that recognizes and supports outstanding community­-committed students at Campus Compact member institutions.

The fellowship is a yearlong opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to nurture their assets and passions, engage in collaborative action, and act to address inequality and polarization. Through the fellowship, Campus Compact provides in-person and virtual learning opportunities focused on building the skills fellows need to serve as effective agents of change.

The president or chancellor at each Campus Compact member institution may nominate one student per year to the Newman Civic Fellowship. In particular, we're seeking 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

In keeping with Campus Compact founder Frank Newman’s passion for educational access, we encourage presidents and chancellors to give preference to students from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in higher education.
