Newcomb Fellows

The Newcomb College Institute provides academic and co-curricular programs designed to enhance women’s leadership and gender equity.

The Newcomb Grant Program recognizes the co-curricular as a vital extension of the curricular, values interdisciplinary and cross-unit collaboration, and funds the production of new knowledge and research by faculty and students and the integration of this research into the undergraduate curriculum in all fields.


To apply, fill out this application.  


The Newcomb Fellows is a voluntary association of faculty from all undergraduate colleges of Tulane University.
