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. Scholarships are also available for child dependents of active duty service members.

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 Prestigious External Student Awards, 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! 

A recording of the Gilman Scholarship Workshop is also available. This Workshop was recorded in September 2023. Please note the information may be outdated if viewed in a future semester. The Workshop is recorded once per year.
