Magellan Project


"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

-- Mark Twain     



The Magellan Project provides W&J-based support for students who wish to pursue interesting summer projects during their W&J careers. These awards are designed to assist W&J students in crafting and telling compelling stories of curiosity and achievement that will be useful throughout their college years and their subsequent transition to life after W&J (graduate school or career).

Examples of past Magellan Projects:

  • studying Holocaust sites in Europe
