Inviting Applications for the 2024 Newman Exploration Travel Fund

Washington University Libraries are now accepting applications for the 2024 Newman Exploration Travel (NEXT) Fund.

This innovative program provides travel funds for up to $10,000 per recipient to one undergraduate student and one graduate student, 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. The NEXT fund invites candidates with an open mind and a sense of adventure to apply.

Applications are due by 6 pm on Sunday, March 3, 2024, 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 2024, and all travel must be completed by December 31, 2024.
