The Gilman Scholarship Program

July 22, 2012

An organization I want to give a shout out to before I start in with the journal entries is the Gilman Program. This is a national program designed specifically for those students who may not be able to afford studying abroad. Long story short, it’s incredibly expensive to study abroad (all kinds of additional costs you don’t anticipate, such as the $40/month I have to pay for internet in the dorms here) and the Gilman program provides substantial scholarships for anyone who is receiving a Federal Pell Grant. Obviously you have to get good grades and write a good essay, but for a scholarship that offers up to $5,000 ($8,000 if you study a “critical need language”) it has a great acceptance rate, something like 1/3 of the applicants receive the award.

I’ve dedicated a tab to this program at the top of this page for more information!
