Please join International Programs for one of several information sessions to discuss the process of applying for a Gilman Scholarship. Applications are now being accepted for Spring and Summer 2022.

The Gilman Scholarship aims to support those who have been underrepresented in study abroad as well as encourage students to choose nontraditional study locations. Scholarships are awarded to U.S. citizen undergraduates who receive the Federal Pell Grant and are pursuing academic, credit-bearing, study abroad programs. The Gilman Scholarship enables students to gain proficiency in diverse languages and cultures, skills that are critically important to thrive in the global economy.

Staff will introduce you to the Gilman, coach you on how to fill out the application, and will give you insight as to what the scholarship reviewers are looking for in an applicant.

Gilman Scholarship information sessions will be offered in a virtual format. Click on the session you'd like to attend to be redirected to the Zoom meeting during its scheduled time.
