Scholarship Events and Deadlines

The Gilman International Scholarship Program provides awards of $5,000 (plus up to a $3,000 supplement for critical languages) for U.S. citizen undergraduate students to pursue summer, semester, or academic-year study abroad opportunities in other countries. This is a need based award, and to be eligible, students currently must be receiving a Federal Pell Grant.  The National and International Scholarships Program is willing to assist in reviewing your scholarship application material, in fact, we welcome the opportunity to help make your application more competitive!  As such, we are offering a two-day informational event about the Gilman Scholarship. February 3, 2022 from 3:30-4:30 is an informational session and alumni Q&A.  February 4th between 3:00-4:00 is a workshop on how to craft your application essays.  Both sessions will be held in 514 IUB.
