Students who are interested in study abroad, but concerned about the cost: The Gilman International Scholarship Program provides awards of $5,000 (plus up to a $3,000 supplement for critical languages) for U.S. citizen undergraduate students to pursue summer, semester, or academic-year study abroad opportunities in other countries. This is a need based award, and to be eligible, students currently must be receiving a Federal Pell Grant.
The National and International Scholarships Program will assist in reviewing your scholarship application material, and welcome the opportunity to help make your application more competitive! To get you started, a two-day informational event about the Gilman Scholarship is being offered:
Gilman International Scholarship Information Session: 807 S. Wright St. Floor 5 (514 IUB), January 31, 2019 3:30 - 4:30 pm
Gilman International Scholarship Writing Workshop: 807 S. Wright St. Floor 5 (514 IUB), February 1, 2019 3:00 - 4:00 pm
