Five Miami University students have been awarded a combined total of $15,000 from the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program to help fund their study abroad experiences this summer and during the coming academic year.
According to the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), more than 2,100 U.S. undergraduate students have been selected to receive Gilman scholarship awards from the March 2023 application cycle. Recipients are American undergraduate students attending 520 U.S. colleges and represent all 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
On average, 70 percent of Gilman recipients self-identify as racial or ethnic minorities, 60 percent are from rural areas and small towns across America, and half are first generation college or university students. The Gilman Scholarship contributes to the Department’s diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility efforts to engage the American people in foreign policy.
Global Initiatives extends our congratulations to Miami's newest Gilman Scholars!
