Washington University Libraries awarded the inaugural Newman Exploration Travel Fund (NEXT) scholarships and grants in May 2018. The awards are made possible through a generous donation from the Eric P. and Evelyn E. Newman Foundation. NEXT recipients use the awards to fund research, personal development, or service projects with a travel component. Winners must complete their travels within nine months of receiving their awards and share their experiences with their peers upon their return.

On Thursday, April 25, from 3:00–4:30 p.m., in John M. Olin Library, five of the 2018 winners will talk about their travels during a panel discussion and poster session. Roumy Theunissen, Director of Global Conversations in the Office of Public Affairs, will serve as moderator.
