UW-Madison will select one undergraduate student to serve as the 2019-20 Newman Civic Fellow. This student will participate in leadership development and learning around civic engagement with a cohort of other fellows from schools around the country. The application deadline is Sunday, December 30 at 11:59 PM.
Newman Civic Fellow nominees must meet the fellowship eligibility criteria:
- Be an enrolled undergraduate at UW-Madison
- Have at least one year of education remaining at UW-Madison
- Commit to providing a short reflection piece (video, article, or letter format) to Campus Compact during their fellowship year
The Newman Civic Fellowship is a core component of Campus Compact’s strategy to build a national network of engaged student leaders who can support one another in building transformational partnerships between campuses and communities. Campus Compact is a coalition of colleges and universities advancing the public purpose of higher education by deepening schools’ ability to improve community life and to educate students for civic and social responsibility.
Newman Civic Fellows are acknowledged for their motivation and potential for public leadership. Newman Civic Fellows demonstrate commitment to finding solutions for challenges facing communities throughout the country. These students represent the next generation of public problem solvers and civic leaders. They serve as national exemplars of the role that higher education can—and does—play in building a better world.
The Newman Civic Fellowship is made possible through the generous support of the KPMG Foundation and Newman’s Own Foundation. Administrative support comes from Campus Compact.
