Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program - October 1, 2013 deadline for Spring 2014

The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program offers grants for U.S. citizen undergraduate students of limited financial means to pursue academic studies or credit-bearing, career-oriented internships abroad. Such international exchange 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 students who have been traditionally under-represented in education abroad, including but not limited to, students with high financial need, community college students, students in underrepresented fields such as the sciences and engineering, students with diverse ethnic backgrounds, and students with disabilities. The program seeks to assist students from a diverse range of public and private institutions from all 50 states, Washington, DC and Puerto Rico.

Award recipients are chosen by a competitive selection process and must use the award to defray eligible study or intern abroad costs. These costs include program tuition, room and board, books, local transportation, insurance and international airfare.

Over 2,300 scholarships of up to $5,000 will be awarded this academic year for U.S. citizen undergraduates to study abroad. Award amounts will vary depending on the length of study and student need with the average award being approximately $4,000.

Students who apply for and receive the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to study abroad are then eligible to receive a Critical Need Language Award from the Gilman Scholarship Program of $8,000. Applicants who are studying a critical need language while abroad will automatically be considered for the Critical Need Language Award. 

Critical Need Languages, taught at CCSF in the Foreign Languages Department, include: 

Chinese (all dialects) 
Japanese 
Russian 

Students need to be studying or interning abroad for a minimum of 4 weeks, and can be participating in a CCSF Program OR any program that grants credit that could be transferred to CCSF.
If you are interested in finding out more, please contact Jill Heffron, Coordinator of the Study Abroad Program at CCSF, by email (jheffron@ccsf.edu), by phone: (415) 239-3778, or stop by the Study Abroad office in Cloud 212.  The deadline for Spring 2014 is: October 1, 2013.
