Do you want to study or intern abroad? Are you an undergraduate student and eligible for a Pell Grant?

Learn more about funding your study abroad experience through the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program, which offers students up to $8,000 for international experiences.


Attend any of the below information sessions to learn more about the program. After attending an information session, bring your application essay drafts for feedback during an Essay Writing Workshop. You do not have to attend an Essay Writing Workshop on the same day that you attend an information session.

Walk-in advising appointments will also be available for students who want to return and ask members of the Programs Abroad staff follow-up questions.

You will need to attend a general study abroad information session at 2:00 p.m. any weekday in the Programs Abroad Office before attending the Gilman Scholarship Program events.
