The Benjamin Gilman International Scholarship Program.

#1, here’s the direct link to the website which contains A LOT of information that I left out of the Youtube video because it would’ve become a Youtube documentary. Haha.

#2, THERE ARE DEADLINES ACCORDING TO WHEN YOU’LL BE STUDYING ABROAD, MAKE SURE TO KNOW THESE DEADLINES AND SUBMIT EVERYTHING AHEAD OF TIME!!!! (P.S: I didn’t say on time, ahead* of time)

#3, don’t forget the requirements:

  • U.S undergraduate student
  • Federal Pell Grant Recipient
  • Already accepted into the study abroad program
  • Program must be at least 28 days and no more than a full academic year
  • Country you’re studying in must not be on the U.S Travel Warning List.

#4, make sure the information you provide in your application are correct and accurate—if you’re unsure about anything, ask your SA advisor before submitting it. *THERE ARE ALSO WEBINARS/OTHER RESOURCES ON THE WEBSITE THAT HELP WITH FILLING OUT THE APPLICATION*

#5, I’ll upload my Statement of Purpose and Follow-Up on Service essays to give anyone who needs help an idea of what the Gilman Program might be looking for since I received the scholarship. PLEASE DO NOT COPY MY ESSAY. That will not help you in any way. I’m sure the judging panels notice everything.

#6, PLEASE feel free to comment below with any questions that you might have!
