Benjamin Gilman Scholarship Program

The Benjamin Gilman Scholarship Program was developed to diversify the kinds of students who study or intern abroad, based on ethnicity, first-generation, disabilities, underrepresented fields of studies. The program provides scholarships of $3,000 - $4,000 on average for students to spend at least 4 weeks abroad studying in a single country (or for at least 28 days per country if in multiple countries).
