Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program
The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program offers grants for U.S. citizen undergraduate students of limited financial means to pursue academic studies abroad. Such international study is intended to better prepare U.S. students to assume significant roles in an increasingly global economy and interdependent world.
The Gilman Scholarship Program aims to support a diverse range of students who have been traditionally under-represented in study abroad, including but not limited to:
- Students with high financial need
- Students studying in non-traditional countries, especially those outside of Western Europe, Australia and New Zealand
- Students with diverse ethnic backgrounds
- Students from a diverse range of institutions including four-year, public, private, community colleges, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Tribal Colleges, Hispanic Serving Institutions and other Minority Serving Institutions.
- Students with disabilities

Pell Grant recipients may be eligible for thousands of dollars of financial aid for use on Study Abroad programs. The Gilman Scholarship Program provides funding for those seeking international education. For spring 2011, Gilman awarded three Boilermakers between $2,000 and $5,000 each toward their experiences overseas. These three students studied in Germany, Dominican Republic, and South Africa. The scholarship covered a large portion of their program costs and made studying abroad possible. During 2009-2010, every Purdue applicant received an award. We aim to increase the amount of scholarships received by informing all Pell Grant recipients of this outstanding opportunity.
