Gilman Scholars

The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program offers grants for U.S. undergraduates of limited financial means to pursue academic studies or credit-bearing internships abroad in any discipline. Such international exchange is intended to better prepare U.S. students to assume significant roles in an increasingly global economy and interdependent world.The program encourages students to choose non-traditional study and intern destinations, especially those outside of Western Europe, and supports students who have been traditionally under-represented in study abroad. Students who receive the Gilman Scholarship may also be eligible to receive an additional Critical Need Language Award from the Gilman Scholarship Program.

Gilman Scholars receive non-competitive eligibility (NCE) for future employment. This is a special hiring authority granted by the U.S. government.
