About the Scholarship
The Gilman Scholarships support undergraduates of limited financial means to study abroad. Students must be U.S. citizens. Award recipients are chosen through a competitive selection process.
Awards must be used to defray eligible study abroad costs, which can include program tuition, room and board, books, local transportation, insurance, and international airfare. Awards go up to $5,000, with an average award of $4,000, and vary depending on the length of study and student. Students receiving federal Pell Grant funding at 2- or 4-year undergraduate colleges or universities may apply.
