Research is the heart of a university education. Professors create knowledge that benefits society, while students learn from their instructors’ expertise. The Office of Grants and Sponsored Research help researchers at St. John’s to identify and secure funding. Professors at St. John’s are teacher-practitioners, using the experience they gain in the lab and in the field to enhance their students’ education. Yet their work influences the world beyond the campus, pushing the limits of medicine, technology, business, the arts, literature—virtually every endeavor that touches our lives. Since 2012, 24 St. John’s students have accepted prestigious Fulbright Scholar awards to conduct research and teach in countries around the world. Students can join the talented young men and women who have received this honor.
