Please join International Programs for one of several information sessions to discuss the process of applying for a Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship. Applications are now being accepted for academic year 2024-2025 (summer 2024, fall 2024, winter 2024, and spring 2025). 

The Gilman Scholarship aims to support those who have been underrepresented in study abroad and 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. 

The presenter of these sessions, Teresa Kout, has served as a selection panelist over the past 14 years and will introduce you to the Gilman, coach you on how to fill out the application, and give insight as to what the selection panelists 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.
