We can use 'each of' but we cannot use 'every of':
"When the students won the competition, each of them was given a prize."

'Each' can be used after the subject, or at the end of a sentence:
"The researchers each received an award."
"The researchers received an award each."

Repeated actions are generally described with 'every':
"I play the guitar every day."
