Newman Civic Fellowship
A program of Campus Compact, the Newman Civic Fellowship recognizes and supports community-committed students who are changemakers and public problem-solvers. Through the fellowship, Campus Compact and the Einhorn Center provide students with training and resources that nurture their skills and passions and help them develop strategies for social change.
In the yearlong program, students participate in virtual learning opportunities, join a national network of community-engaged student leaders and attend convening with other Fellows from their cohort. Learn more about the program on the Campus Compact website.
In addition to the leadership, professional development and networking opportunities available to all Newman Civic Fellows, the Cornell representative will be eligible to receive:
- a $1,500 award
- an additional $1,500 award for their community partner
- up to $2,000 for travel to Campus Compact convenings
Cornell will nominate one student to represent the university in the 2022-23 Newman cohort. The Einhorn Center facilitates the Cornell nomination process. Apply to be the 2022-23 nominee by Tuesday, November 30, 2021.
