Miami students receive Gilman scholarships for study abroad

Three Miami University students received Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarships to help fund their study abroad experiences this fall.

  • Abigail Culpepper, junior international studies and linguistics double major, will participate in an ISEP exchange at Université d`Angers in France.
  • Kainon Funches, senior family studies major, will spend fall semester at the University of Ghana through the USAC program. 
  • Bryan Kubota, senior, psychology and East Asian Languages and Cultures double major, will participate in Miami's Kansai Gaidai exchange program in Japan. 

The Gilman scholarships are awarded twice a year by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State. These students are three of the 850 American undergraduates selected from more than 2,900 applicants for the Fall/AY 2016-2017 Gilman Scholarship Program.
