Are you planning to study abroad? Do you have a Pell Grant as part of your financial aid package? Check to see if you qualify for the Gilman Scholarship which awards funds toward your study abroad costs.

Visit The U.S. Department of State's Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program is pleased to announce that the online application is open for students participating in credit-bearing study abroad and international internship programs during the spring 2019 and summer 2019 terms.

The Gilman Scholarship Program offers grants of up to $5,000 to U.S. undergraduate students of high financial need. Students studying a critical need language may be eligible to receive the Critical Need Language Award, a supplemental grant of up to $3,000. The Gilman Program aims to diversify the kinds of students who study and intern abroad and the countries and regions where they go by supporting U.S. undergraduates who might otherwise not consider these unique and valuable opportunities due to financial constraints.

Applications are due Tuesday, October 2, 2018 by 11:59 pm (central time).
