Our Record of Success

For decades, Holy Cross has helped scores of students secure highly competitive fellowships

Holy Cross students and alumni have a strong record of success securing highly competitive grants and scholarships, such as the Fulbright, Truman, and Goldwater, among others.

For the past several years, The Chronicle of Higher Education has listed Holy Cross among the “top producers” of Fulbright awards for American students. The highly competitive Fulbright grants each year go to only about 1,700 U.S. students, chosen for their leadership potential and their commitment to immersing themselves in another country. Some scholars spend the academic year teaching English in countries across the world. Others complete groundbreaking research on a wide range of topics and issues.
