Conor Murtagh, a Secondary Education and English - Honors major, and Creative Writing minor, won the prestigious Fulbright Grant that will allow him to teach the English language to students in Malaysia next year. The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and specifically chooses participants based on their academic merit, and leadership potential. Conor will represent the U.S. as a cultural ambassador through this transformative experience. Conor is excited to work with students with special needs, to learn from and interact with the multi-ethnic culture that Malaysia embodies, and to cultivate his teaching skills. He also hopes to nurture students' skills through a potential young writers club, and to build camaraderie with the students, all while exchanging mutual, and meaningful language skills.

Educational Studies Sophomores Elizabeth Newman, Bianca Reilly, and Catherine Way received the prestigious Clare Boothe Luce Award for their junior and senior years. The originator of the Clare Boothe Luce award sought to encourage women to enter, study, graduate, and teach in science, math, and engineering. Recipients of this award receive a full ride scholarship during their final two undergraduate years, allowing students to continue their academic excellence, and thereby preparing them for graduate study. Applicants must be nominated for the Clare Boothe Luce Scholarship by faculty, and demonstrate excellence in conducting research, as well as superior academic progress. Sophomore recipients, Elizabeth Newman and Bianca Rielly, are majoring in Elementary/Special Education and Mathematics. Bianca hopes to conduct research that contributes to effective teaching practices for children who have difficulty with mathematics. Catherine Way, a sophomore majoring in Secondary Education, Special Education , and Mathematics is an active student on campus as a Peer Advisor, member of Gamma Phi, New Jersey Student Education Association (NJSEA), and the Seton Hall Pep Band.
