Gilman Scholarship

Amount: Up to $5,000. About: The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs sponsors the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program, which provides funding for U.S. citizens who require financial assistance to study or intern abroad. To be eligible for the Gilman Program, applicants must be an undergraduate student in good standing at an accredited institution of higher education in the United States (including both two-year and four-year institutions), be 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, and be in the process of applying to, or accepted to, a credit-bearing study abroad or internship program. Veterans of military service are encouraged to apply, and preference is given to veterans when other factors are equivalent.
