Featured Program: Newcomb Scholar Program

The Newcomb Scholars Program selects twenty intellectually curious and motivated first-year students to participate in an academically rigorous, interdisciplinary learning and leadership experience each year.

The Newcomb Scholars Program is the only selective, small cohort program for Tulane University undergraduates focused on feminist leadership. The Scholars comprise a community of diverse thinkers, leaders, and activists. With the help of their peers, the Newcomb faculty and staff, and the vast array of resources available through Newcomb Institute, Scholars are empowered to develop the skills necessary to become innovative and compassionate leaders in the 21st century.
