The Newcomb Scholars Program is a unique opportunity for incoming women at Tulane who are interested in an academically enriching and shared four-year experience through undergraduate research, seminars, and experiential learning opportunities. All first year incoming women are invited to attend an Information Session to learn more about the Newcomb Scholars Program, its benefits and expectations, as well as the application process.
