Caldwell Scholars Around the World

The Caldwell Endowment recently celebrated 20 years of giving, helping students achieve their dream of study abroad.  For most Caldwell Scholars, study abroad was their first trip outside of the United States, but in the 20 years since the award began, Caldwell Scholars have traveled all over the world, for study, work or pleasure.
