Three to Receive Study Abroad Scholarships

Three University of Maine undergraduate students have been selected for 2013 study abroad scholarships through the international Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program, according to the UMaine Office of International Programs. Hashim Abdi, a fourth-year zoology and microbiology major from Portland, Maine will receive $3,500 toward expenses to study in Beijing, China. Colby Fortier-Brown, a third-year bioengineering major with a business administration minor from Randolph, Maine will receive $3,000 toward a research semester in the Netherlands, and his brother Patrick Fortier-Brown, a third-year psychology major from Randolph, will receive $4,000 also toward a semester in the Netherlands. The Gilman Scholarship Program is open to financially constrained U.S. citizen undergraduate students planning to study abroad with the purpose of diversifying the kinds of students who study abroad and the countries they choose, according to the program sponsors, the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
