Newman Civic Fellowship

Newman Civic Fellowship is a one-year fellowship experience for community-committed students that recognizes and supports the next generation of public problem solver students. Fellows are provided training and resources to help them develop strategies to achieve social change and gain personal, professional, and civic development. The student fellow is selected in the spring; the fellowship is for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Fellows do not receive any monetary awards or scholarships through the fellowship. Through the Newman Civic Fellowship, Campus Compact provides learning opportunities focused on the skills fellows need in order to serve as an effective agent of change in addressing public problems and building an equitable community while working alongside with a mentor.
