St. Catherine University students have received scholarships from several external sources — totaling $54,750 — to pursue study abroad this academic year.

The scholarship amount is the largest on record, according to the Office of Global Studies.

Students can use their St. Kate's scholarships to pay for study abroad, or combine them with scholarships from sources outside the University. With the latter, says Raine De Campeau, assistant director of global studies, "some students have their experience fully funded without the need to take out any loans. It also means that the University is sharing in the investment of developing globally-minded students."

The 15 scholarship recipents are:
