    The Wentworth Travel Fellowship, a gift of Mr. Charles F. Green III, was established in 2001 to enable a select number of students to travel to sites, in America or abroad, associated with literary authors and texts.

    Each year, students work with faculty sponsors to submit applications detailing journeys inspired by and connected with a specific text, author, or movement in an effort to explore the relationship of artistic production to geographic space.

    Most of these trips will take place during holiday break, spring break, or over the summer and must be completed prior to the student's graduation. In the past, Wentworth Fellows have traveled to places as diverse as Beijing, Moscow, Oxford, Berlin, Prince Edward Island, and Providence, Rhode Island. There are no restrictions (except for those put in place by the State Department) on where a student can go on a Wentworth Travel Fellowship.

    Learn more about the fellowship here.


    This year's Fellows are:

    •     Savannah Jones, who traveled to Bath and Steventon, England to study Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice
    •     Sophie Foster, who went to Elkhead, Colorado to study Dorothy Wickenden
    •     Heather Tripp, who went to London and the Lake District to study Beatrix Potter
    •     Abbey Piner, who traveled to London, Oxford and Liverpool to study Lewis Carroll and John Cannon

    The library expansion is making great progress! You can now see the iconic UNCW red brick on the exterior and on the inside drywall, paint, and primer are going up! We are currently on schedule to open the new building in fall 2024.

    During fall and winter break there will be moderate disruptions to the current library building as some interior renovation work is completed. Library operations will continue as usual during these times, but moderate noise should be expected.

    The current building will close at the end of spring semester for additional renovation, re-opening in fall 2024. During the summer 2024, library operations will be significantly impacted. More information will be shared about alternate operations next semester.

    Learn more about our expansion and renovation.
