Scholarships and Competitions

As a result of operational changes at the Libraries due to COVID-19, we regret that the 2020 Newman Exploration Travel Fund has been canceled.

Newman Exploration Travel Fund

The Newman Exploration Travel Fund aims to support students, faculty, and staff on Washington University’s Danforth Campus who wish to explore the world. Prize amount is up to $10,000 per award. Travel must be completed within nine months of award date.

Carl Neureuther Student Book Collection Essay Competition

The competition encourages students at Washington University to read for enjoyment and to develop personal libraries throughout their lives. Awards are given in two categories: graduate and undergraduate. There is a first- and second-place award for each of the two categories. First prize is $1,000; second prize is $500.
