Gilman Scholarship Workshop




Are you a Federal Pell Grant recipient? If so, you are eligible to apply for the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship. If awarded, you could receive up to $5,000 to study abroad! Students studying critical need languages while abroad may qualify for additional funding.

Workshops are hosted each semester to help student prepare for the Gilman Scholarship application process. The Gilman Scholarship Workshop is facilitated by the Office of National and International Scholarships and Fellowships (NISF), the Financial Aid Office, and the Study Abroad Office. The Workshop serves to assist Gilman-eligible students in understanding the requirements of the scholarship as well as how to best prepare and be successful when applying. A representative of the Financial Aid Office has experience serving on the Gilman Awards Committee, so you can get first-hand tips on what to do and what not to do. Any Pell Grant recipient is eligible for the Gilman Scholarship, so please join us in learning how you can get money to study abroad!
