Gilman International Scholarship Program

The Gilman International Scholarship Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) and administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE). The Gilman Program aims to diversify the kinds of students who study and intern abroad and the countries and regions where they go.  Since the program’s inception in 2001, the Gilman Program has awarded over 17,000 U.S. undergraduates with high financial need representing more than 1,100 U.S. institutions, to study and intern abroad in more than 140 countries.  All eligible applicants are encouraged to apply.

The Program is pleased to announce that for the upcoming scholarship period applications will be accepted from students participating in education abroad programs in Mexican states where no advisory is in effect according to the U.S. Department of State Travel Warning.

Applications for summer 2015 and fall/academic year 2015-2016 programs will open in mid-January, and student applications are due March 3, 2015, by 11:59pm (central).  For tips on constructing essays and meeting other application requirements, attend one of the following workshops in 253 Estabrooke Hall (a classroom in the International Study Center, which is adjacent to our suite on the 2nd floor of Estabrooke):
