Buckeyes awarded Benjamin A. Gilman International ScholarshipNine Buckeyes were awarded the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to support their study abroad experience in summer 2019. The Gilman Scholarship is a program of the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs fosters mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries to promote friendly, sympathetic, and peaceful relations. 

Since the inception of the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program in 2001, over 28,000 scholarships have been awarded to students participating in study abroad programs and internships around the world. View complete list of Gilman Scholarship Summer 2019 Recipients

The U.S. Department of State’s goal for the Gilman Program is to broaden the student population that studies and interns abroad by supporting American undergraduate students who might otherwise not participate due to financial constraints. The international experiences gained through participation in the program enable tomorrow’s leaders to thrive in the global economy and contribute to our nation’s prosperity. For more information about the Gilman Scholarship, contact Louise Yahiaoui, education abroad specialist.
