Gilman Scholarship Info Sessions

Join the Office of Study Abroad and International Travel to learn more about the Gilman Scholarship and application requirements. Choose one 30-minute session to attend! There are 8 dates to choose from.

The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program is a program of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

To be eligible for a Gilman Scholarship, an applicant must be:

  • A citizen of the United States;
  • An undergraduate student in good standing at an accredited institution of higher education in the United States
  • Receiving a Federal Pell Grant during the time of application or provide proof that they will be receiving a Pell Grant during the term of their study abroad program or internship;
  • In the process of applying to, or accepted for, a study abroad or internship program of at least three weeks (21 days) for students from four-year institutions, eligible for credit from the student’s home institution. Proof of program acceptance is required prior to award disbursement;
  • Applying for credit-bearing study abroad programs in a country or area with an overall Travel Advisory Level 1 or 2, according to the U.S. Department of State’s Travel Advisory System.

Gilman Scholarship recipients can only receive the scholarship once. If a student previously declined the Gilman Scholarship, they are welcome to re-apply, as long as they still meet all eligibility requirements listed above.

Application deadline is March 3rd at 11:59 pm PST.
