2022-23 Welles Award Winners Announced

If you could spend a summer pursuing any academic interest – anywhere in the world – what would you study and where would you go? With support from Lawrenceville’s William Bouton Welles Awards, Lawrentians will travel the globe this summer to follow their academic passions, then share their findings with the School community in the fall.
