Considering Studying Abroad in Spring 2012?

Are you thinking about studying abroad this Spring 2012? Are you a Pell Grant recipient and U.S. citizen? Are you wondering how to pay for it or fit it into your schedule? Learn about the Gilman International Scholarship, which provides up to $5000 for Pell Grant recipients to study abroad. Last year 23 Maryland applicants won over $98,000 in Gilman scholarship awards for study abroad!

Please join us for a panel discussion with Gilman recipients and staff from Education Abroad and the National Scholarships Office:

Thursday, September 8, 12:00 noon - 1:00 pm
St. Mary's Hall, Multipurpose Room (adjacent to the patio facing McKeldin library)

Food and refreshments will be served. Please RSVP to gilman@umd.edu.
 Interested but unable to attend? Please contact gilman@umd.edu to learn more.

IMPORTANT: The deadline to apply for a Gilman Scholarship is fast approaching - October 4, 2011! Your chances of a successful application are dramatically stronger if you start early and seek advice from the National Scholarships Office.

ELIGIBILITY: To apply for a Gilman Scholarship you must be a US citizen receiving Pell Grants during the semester you plan to study abroad. For the October 4, 2011 deadline you must be planning to apply to Spring 2012 study abroad programs that are at least 4 weeks long - WINTER TERM COURSES ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR GILMAN SCHOLARSHIPS.
