Smith and Edwards Awarded Gilman International Scholarship

MeganSmithMegan Smith, a sophomore majoring in biology with a minor in Spanish, and Jada Edwards, a senior majoring in teaching English to speakers of other languages, are the recipients of the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship. Smith and Edwards are two of nearly 1,000 American undergraduate students across the United States selected to receive this scholarship to study abroad during the 2018-2019 academic year.

Smith, studying abroad in Lima, Peru on the Health Science, Field Work and Medical Spanish program through International Studies Abroad, said the Gilman Scholarship will assist with paying for her program costs and other financial responsibilities.

“The Gilman Scholarship will help me overcome the financial constraints that would otherwise prevent me from participating in an education abroad program,” Smith said.

The Gilman Scholarship is accepting applications from students hoping to study abroad during the 2019 autumn semester and 2019-2020 academic year. The application deadline is March 5. Students can be awarded up to $5,000 depending on the length of their education abroad program and student need. For more information about the Gilman Scholarship, contact Louise Yahiaoui, education abroad specialist, or visit oia.osu.edu.
