FY 2016 Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship

The U. S. Study Abroad Branch within the office of Global Educational Programs of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) announces an open competition to administer the Benjamin A.

Gilman International Scholarship Program.

Public and private non-profit organizations meeting

the provisions described in International Revenue Code section 26 USC 501(C)(3) may submit proposals for the purpose of administering a scholarship program for credit-bearing academic study or internships outside the United States by U. S. undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need (Pell Grant recipients).

The intent of the authoring legislation for the Benjamin A.

Gilman International Scholarship Program is to broaden the U. S. student population that participates in study abroad by focusing on those students who would not otherwise study outside the U. S. due to financial constraints.

The Gilman Program provides scholarships to enable U. S. citizen undergraduate students of limited financial means to pursue credit-bearing academic studies or internships abroad.

Such foreign study expands the understand of other countries and cultures among U. S. students who may not otherwise be able to study or intern overseas, thereby better preparing these U. S. students to assume significant roles in an increasingly global economy and society.
