Gilman International Scholarship

Campus Deadline: 19 September 2012

The Gilman Scholarship assists students who are receiving Federal Pell Grant support to study abroad anywhere world-wide. Applications are available twice a year: fall semester for study during spring/summer; spring semester for upcoming study during fall/spring.

The scholarship is intended to better prepare students to assume significant roles in an increasingly global economy and interdependent world. The program encourages students to choose non-traditional study abroad destinations, especially those outside of Western Europe, Australia, NZ or Canada; however, students may study abroad anywhere world-wide.

The scholarship provides financial support of varying amounts dependent upon the length of study and student need. Scholarship recipients are also eligible to receive additional funding if their study abroad includes language study in one of the critical need languages as identified by the Gilman Scholarship and US Department of State (there are 50, including but not limited to: Arabic, Chinese, Russian, Swahili, Korean, Persian, Turkic and Indic languages).

Eligibility and Selection Criteria:

  • US citizens
  • First-year through seniors
  • Good academic standing
  • Recipients of Federal Pell Grant
  • Plans to study abroad for a minimum of 4 weeks in programs that are eligible for Lafayette course credit
