Scholarship Programs

No grants are made directly to individual students.

The Charlotte W. Newcombe Foundation provides partner institutions with scholarship funding through three programs:

Charlotte W. Newcombe Doctoral Dissertation Fellowships encourage original and significant study of ethical and religious values in all areas of human endeavor. Awards are based on a rigorous national competition administered by the Institute for Citizens & Scholars. For the 2016-17 academic year, twenty Newcombe Fellows have each received a $25,000 stipend for a year of dissertation writing.

Newcombe Scholarships for Mature Students support completion of bachelor’s degrees by students who are twenty-five years of age or older who need financial assistance at selected colleges and universities.

Newcombe Scholarships for Students with Disabilities support completion of degrees by students with disabilities who need financial assistance at selected colleges and universities.

Special Scholarship Endowments support completion of degrees by economically disadvantaged students at a select group of institutions.

Students should note that the Newcombe Foundation only makes grants to universities, colleges, and one major foundation partner; these organizations select recipients and distribute Newcombe awards.
