Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship
The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program enables students of limited financial means to study or intern abroad. A Gilman Scholarship enables students to gain proficiency in diverse languages and cultures, skills that are critically important to their academic and career development. The Gilman Scholarship Program broadens the student population that studies and interns abroad by supporting undergraduates who have been historically underrepresented in study abroad and who may not have otherwise participated due to financial constraints. To be eligible for this opportunity, students must be receiving a Federal Pell Grant at the time of application or provide proof that they will be receiving a Pell Grant during the term of their study abroad program or internship.
