Becoming a Fellow
Do you have an idea for an excursion? Do you want to start a Newman Forum club at your school? Have you participated in every Newman Forum event you could get your hands on?
You can be a Newman Forum Fellow
When you see “fellowship” in college, it typically means a short-term, paid or unpaid professional development opportunity. A fellowship is a group of people with a shared professional interest, and a specific amount of time is set aside (typically 1-2 years) to focus on work within that interest. (So yes: The Fellowship of the Ring IS a proper fellowship…)
High school fellowships are very rare; typically, fellowships are reserved for graduate students and post-doctoral professionals. So while a Newman Forum fellowship is a little different, it still looks AMAZING on a resume or college application!
