Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program
The Gilman Scholarship Program aims to diversify the kinds of students who study and intern abroad and the countries and regions where they go by offering awards to U.S. undergraduates who might otherwise not participate due to financial constraints. Now is the time to think about how the U.S. Department of State's Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program can help get YOU overseas! To encourage diversity, the program strongly urges undergraduate students with disabilities to apply for its scholarships, which can help cover the costs of study abroad expenses or disability-related support while you're abroad.
