The Gilman Scholarship Program is funded by the Bureau of Educational Affairs of the U.S. Department of State. The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs fosters mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries to promote friendly, sympathetic, and peaceful relations.
The Gilman Scholarship Program offers scholarships to bachelor students who wish to go abroad. The scholarship provides stipends for U.S. bachelor students who are receiving Federal Pell Grant funding at a two-year or four-year college or university, to participate in study abroad programs worldwide.
Successful applicants to the Gilman Scholarship Program are U.S. bachelor students who are planning to study abroad. The scholarship program aims to diversify the kinds of students who study abroad and the countries and regions where they go by supporting undergraduates who might otherwise not participate due to financial constraints.
The Gilman Scholarship Program accepts applications two times per year. Ideally, students should begin their application one full semester before their study abroad program is scheduled to begin.
