Newman Civic Fellowship Application Process

Information for Students

In addition to these core characteristics, Newman Civic Fellow nominees for the 2024-2025 academic year must also meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • The nominee must be enrolled at a Campus Compact member institution (Wittenberg) during spring semester 2024.
  • Each institution may nominate only one student.
  • In keeping with Frank Newman’s passion for educational access, preference is given to students from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in higher education.
  • The nominee must have at least one year of their education remaining (either at their current institution or at a different one) such that they will be enrolled in higher education for the duration of the 2024-2025 academic year.
  • Nominees must commit to providing a short reflection piece (video, article, or letter format) to Campus Compact during their fellowship year.
  • If the nominee is selected to represent the university, the nominee must identify a local mentor for the duration of the fellowship.
  • If the nominee is selected, Wittenberg will help cover the cost of transportation to the annual convening of Newman Civic Fellows.
  • Students interested in applying to be Wittenberg's Newman Civic Fellow Nominee must complete the required forms below by the listed dates.
