The Gilman Scholarship program is open to American undergraduate students who are planning to study overseas. The program aims to diversify the kinds of students who study overseas and the countries and regions where they go by supporting undergraduates who might otherwise not participate due to financial constraints. Award amounts vary depending on the length of study and student need with the average award being approximately $4,000. Applicants who are studying a critical need language (such as Arabic) while overseas will automatically be considered for the Critical Need Language Award for an additional $8,000 of scholarship funding. The application will open in January 2020. Deadline: March 3, 2020. For more information, please visit the Gilman website: http://www.iie.org/Programs/Gilman-Scholarship-Program.
