Education Studies Concentrator Awarded Newman Civic Fellowship

April 6, 2017

Brown University sophomore Yamileth Renteria has been selected for a 2017 Newman Civic Fellowship - an annual award named for Campus Compact founder Frank Newman which recognizes students who engage in collaborations to create long-term social change, who take action in addressing inequality and political polarization, and who demonstrate potential and motivation for long-term, effective civic engagement.

"Access to an education with the best intentions for students is fundamental," Renteria had written in her personal statement for the fellowship. "I'm committed to doing all I can to ensure everyone has this right fulfilled."
