    Scholarship Information

    Gilman Scholarship Program

    The Gilman Scholarship Program for Pell Grant students aims to diversify the kinds of students who study and intern abroad and the countries and regions where they go by offering awards to U.S. undergraduates who might otherwise not participate due to financial constraints.

    To learn more, including eligibility information and deadlines, visit the Gilman Scholarship Program website.

    Fund for Education Abroad (FEA)

    FEA is expanding access to study abroad by raising awareness of its benefits to the individual and value to the collective, and by granting scholarships.

    Applicants from groups underrepresented in study abroad and those destined for non-traditional locations are given preference, in an effort to make the demographics of U.S. undergraduates studying abroad reflect the rich diversity of the U.S. population.
