The Gilman Scholarships support undergraduates of limited financial means to study abroad. International study can help prepare US students to assume significant roles in an increasingly global economy and interdependent world. Students must be US Citizens. Award recipients are chosen by 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 of 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.

 Application Process

Certification through Off Campus Programs and Financial Aid

Please fill out the online Fellowship Advising Registration Form to indicate your intent to apply.

All applications for the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship must be certified online by both a financial aid and a study abroad advisor. The financial aid advisor will verify that the student is currently receiving a Federal Pell grant and the estimated amount of financial aid, in grants and scholarships, that the student may apply to their study abroad program. The study abroad advisor will verify the study abroad program information provided by the student and that the program they are applying to is an approved, undergraduate credit-eligible program at the student's home university.

When completing the online applications, students will be able to choose the Study Abroad Advisor, Jonathan Sylvia and the Financial Aid Advisor, Christen O'Connor from the drop down lists provided.

While the Office of Fellowship Advising cannot certify your application, we are happy to advise you on your application materials.
