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 provides students with training and resources that nurture their assets and passions and help them develop strategies for social change. The yearlong program includes virtual learning opportunities and networking as part of a national network of engaged student leaders and an optional in-person convening.

- a $1,500 award
- an additional $1,500 award for their community partner
