UMD: A Globally Connected University

Gilman Scholarship Application Deadline

Apply for the  Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship by Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018.  

Pell Grant recipients who are U.S. citizens and studying abroad for 3 weeks or longer can apply to the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship and receive up to $8,000 to study abroad for a semester.

EA is also giving $500 study abroad scholarships to students who simply complete the scholarship application and work with UMD's National Scholarship Office (since we know students who do so are more successful in winning these scholarships!)

To receive the $500 stipend from EA for Gilman Applicants - you must take the following steps:

  1. Register with the UMD National Scholarships Office ASAP and no later than Friday September 28, 2018.
  2. Work with NSO and have at least one draft of their Gilman essays reviewed before the October 2, 2018 Gilman application deadline.
  3. Apply directly to the Gilman Scholarship by October 2nd, 2018. 

If you have any questions, please contact your EA advisor.
