Gilman Scholarship for Study Abroad

Are you interested in study abroad but concerned that it is not financially feasible?

Are you a recipient of the Federal Pell Grant?

If you answered ‘yes’ to the above questions, there is a study abroad scholarship just for you!  The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship aims to diversify the kinds of students who study and intern abroad by offering awards to U.S. undergraduates who might otherwise not participate due to financial constraints.

Eligibility: U.S. citizen undergraduate students receiving Federal Pell Grant funding.

Timeline: The Gilman Scholarship is available for semester-long, year-long, and summer programs (must be at least 4 consecutive weeks in a country).  The next deadline is March 6, 2018 for Summer 2018, Fall 2018, and Academic Year 2018-2019 study abroad programs.
