Newnham in America is a well-established network of former students living across the USA. There are particularly strong concentrations of alumnae in New York, Washington, Boston and in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our US Alumnae Committee has members from many different states and is always interested in hearing from others who would like to join. It holds three conference call committee meetings each year.
The Principal aims to visit annually and meet alumnae with members of the US Committee. Each year, groups attend the Cambridge in America days on the East and West coasts and enjoy a special Newnham outing for brunch beforehand.
The US Alumnae Committee, chaired by Margaret Campbell (NC 1966), generously supports a competitive Travel Award each year for a Newnham student to carry out a project in the US during the summer vacation.
Applications are currently being received for the summer 2022 award. The closing date is 14 February 2022. The shortlisted applications will then be voted on by US alumnae. Read more here under Grants.
When Fellows visit the US they are delighted to meet with alumnae and often speak at special Newnham events hosted by the US Committee.
Please note the Newnham US website is no longer active. Any information regarding the Newnham group in the US will be posted here from now on.
