Newcombe Fellowship Celebrates More Than 40 Years of Impact
January 20, 2023
The Charlotte W. Newcombe Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship has been supporting emerging scholars in the humanities and social sciences for more than 40 years. Fellows have shaped both a new era of thought around issues of religious and ethical values and a new generation of students and their understanding of the world.
The Newcombe Fellowship: More Than 40 Years of Impact
The Newcombe Fellowship has supported more than 1,300 doctoral candidates addressing questions of ethical and religious values in interesting, original, and significant ways.
The Charlotte W. Newcombe Foundation created this Fellowship in 1981 and it continues to be administered by Citizens & Scholars. Now in its fifth decade, the Newcombe Fellowship has become a nationally noted award that distinguishes recipients within their fields.
Religious commitments and ethical ideals can be found in every time and place. Newcombe Fellows are late-stage Ph.D. students in the humanities and social sciences whose research in some way attends to those commitments and ideals and seeks to understand the communities, social practices, and political arrangements that embody them.
Since the Fellowship’s inception, the Newcombe Fellowship has supported more than 1,300 doctoral candidates with essential time and resources to complete their writing. Newcombe Fellows have gone on to be noted faculty at domestic and foreign institutions, leaders in their fields of study, Pulitzer Prize winners, MacArthur Fellows, and more.Related: Newcombe Fellow Andrew Perrin on Making Democracy Work
