Campus Representative: Applicants to the Gilman International Scholarship Program from Indiana University apply through the Office of Overseas Study.

Gilman Scholarship Basics

The Gilman Scholarship Program offers awards for undergraduate study abroad and was established by the International Academic Opportunity Act of 2000. This scholarship provides awards for U.S. undergraduate students who are receiving Federal Pell Grant funding at a two-year or four-year college or university to participate in study and intern abroad programs worldwide.

The Gilman Scholarship Program is open to U.S. citizen undergraduate students who are planning to study and intern abroad. The program aims to diversify the kinds of students who study and intern abroad and the countries and regions where they go by supporting undergraduates who might otherwise not participate due to financial constraints.

Award Amounts

Awards of up to $5,000 are made for up to one academic year of undergraduate study abroad. Award amounts will vary based on student's rank in the selection process, their financial need and length of program with the average award being $4,000. Students who apply for and receive the Gilman Scholarship to study abroad are then eligible to receive an additional $3,000 Critical Need Language Supplement from the Gilman Scholarship Program for a total possible award of up to $8,000 if they are studying a critical need language while abroad. 

Length of Study and Deadlines

Gilman scholarships can last for one semester or an academic year.
