Newcomb Scholars Program

The Newcomb Scholars Program selects twenty intellectually curious and motivated women each year to participate in an academically rigorous interdisciplinary learning and leadership experience. Together, the Scholars create a community of diverse thinkers, leaders, and activists, which challenges and empowers them to be innovative and compassionate leaders in the 21st century.

The only small cohort honors program for Tulane University undergraduate women, Newcomb Scholars offers a unique opportunity to build scholarship and leadership skills.
