Students from St. Edward's are taking to the streets (and off-roading) as they explore everything from online journalism to trail narratives.

Grants awarded each year by the university's Fellowship Office make it all possible. Last summer, 14 top students interned, worked and researched across the globe, from Canada to Cambodia. They returned to campus in the fall, ready to compete for prestigious postgraduate scholarships and fellowships — like the record 10 Fulbright awards announced in May.
