Washington University Libraries are now accepting applications for the 2022 Newman Exploration Travel (NEXT) Fund.
This innovative program provides travel funds for up to $10,000 per recipient to two students, one faculty, and one staff member studying or working full time on the Danforth, North, or West Campuses.
Traveling into the unknown represents a unique opportunity to achieve goals, realize a lifelong dream, serve humanity, or broaden horizons. Any eligible student or member of the Danforth, North, and West Campus faculty and staff with an open mind and a sense of adventure is invited to apply. Travel for the fund should be for the purpose of:
- Intellectual, cultural, and/or scholarly development
- Personal growth and expanded awareness
- Conducting research toward academic or personal learning goals
- Service or contribution to the greater good
Applications are due by midnight (12 am) on Sunday, March 6, 2022, and must include a budget and written proposal. Recipients will be required to submit a post-travel report and lead a presentation about their travel and how it impacted them.
Full program details, including travel criteria and application requirements, are available on the Newman Exploration Travel Fund page.
Winners will be announced in April 2022, and all travel must be completed by December 31, 2022.
