Gilman Scholarship info sessions to be held for Spring and Summer 2018

September 19th, 2017


Please join International Programs for one of several information sessions to discuss the process of applying for a Gilman Scholarship. 

The Gilman Scholarship Program is an undergraduate grant program for U.S. citizens of limited financial means to enable them to study abroad and better prepare them to thrive in the global economy. 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 aims to support those who have been under-represented in study abroad as well as encourage students choosing non-traditional study locations.

This year’s application deadline is October 3, 2017, at 11:59 p.m.
