Gilman Study Abroad Scholarship for Pell Grant Recipients

Are you a Pell Grant recipient (and US citizen) planning to study abroad in Winter, Spring or Summer 2020? 
You may be eligible to apply for the U.S. State Department’s Gilman Scholarship, which provides up to $5,000 for study abroad and up to $8,000 if you are studying a critical language. In the last three years, 100 UMD undergraduate students have won Gilman Scholarship! 
Attend one of our upcoming information sessions and you'll get access to our ELMS Gilman resource site, which includes samples of successful application essays. We'll also let you know how you can earn an automatic $1,000 grant from the UMD Education Abroad office for completing a Gilman application!

INFORMATION SESSIONSWe are also holding several information sessions where you can learn more about the program and ask questions. RSVP: gilman@umd.edu. Note session locations. If you're interested but unable to attend, please write to the same address to let us know.
