Excellence Across the Globe

Seton Hall's Globe-Trotting Scholars

Seton Hall University's emphasis on academic excellence has led to a marked increase in the number of students and professors chosen for prestigious academic awards.

Close collaborations with professors and small class sizes provide Seton Hall students with rich opportunities to pursue their intellectual passions and excel. Additionally, direct institutional support allows faculty members to pursue research opportunities benefiting students in New Jersey and beyond.

The following are just a few of the students and faculty members who have earned academic honors through their hard work and commitment to excellence. Many of these awards include the chance for honorees to continue their education and research abroad, allowing them to expand their horizons in new and exciting ways.

For more information about any of these scholars, please contact James J. Kimble, Ph.D., University Fellowship Advisor, at (973) 275-2776 or james.kimble@shu.edu.
