Students who are eligible for a Pell grant and going abroad can apply for a Gilman Scholarship. The application is now open and due October 1 for Spring 2020, Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 study abroad programs.
Studying abroad can be a life-changing experience! The Gilman Scholarship Program provides up to up to $5,000 (or $8,000 including the Critical Need Language Award) for undergraduate students who are U.S. citizens and Federal Pell Grant recipients at two-year or four-year institutions.
The Gilman Scholarship Program has recently made updates to the selection criteria, eligibility and application to be more responsive to student needs. Their hope is to accommodate as many institutions as possible and to create even more opportunities for students to become Gilman Scholars.
