The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship is now accepting applications for the Summer 2013 and Fall 2013 terms.

The Gilman International Scholarship Program offers grants for undergraduate students of limited financial means to pursue academic studies abroad. Ideally, the Gilman Scholarship aims to support students who have been traditionally underrepresented in study abroad, including, but not limited to, students with high financial need, students in underrepresented fields such as the sciences and engineering, students with diverse ethnic backgrounds, and students with disabilities. Award amounts will vary depending on the length of study and student need. To be eligible for the award, a student must:

-be a U.S. citizen,
-be receiving a Federal Pell Grant or provide proof that he or she will receive a Pell Grant during the term in which the award is received,
-be accepted to or applying to a study abroad program eligible for credit by the College, and
-be studying abroad for at least four weeks in one country.

Applications and further information are available online.

The Summer 2013 and Fall 2013 application deadline for this scholarship is Tuesday, Mar. 5, 2013.
