Gilman Scholarship

The Gilman Scholarship Program broadens the student population that studies and interns abroad by supporting undergraduates who might not otherwise participate due to financial constraints. The program aims to encourage students to study and intern in a diverse array of countries and world regions. Award amounts will vary depending on the length of study and student need. Award recipients must use the award to defray eligible study or intern abroad costs, including program tuition, room and board, books, local transportation, insurance, international airfare, passport and visa fees. Applicants who are studying a critical need language while abroad can apply for a competitive, supplemental award.


Application Deadline: Early October for spring study abroad programs; Early March for summer and fall & academic year study abroad programs
