In the past eight years, seven St. Ambrose students have earned a Fulbright award, the oldest and largest U.S. exchange program—and one of the most prestigious. It offers opportunities for students, scholars and professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching and teaching in elementary and secondary schools worldwide.
