Five Students Win U.S. Department of State’s Gilman Scholarship

After working with the Office of National Scholarships, under the direction of Mallory Carpenter of the Honors College, five Marshall University students have won Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarships to study abroad. Gilman Scholars receive up to $5,000 to apply towards their study abroad or internship program costs with additional funding available for the study of a critical language overseas. The Gilman Scholarship supports American undergraduate students of limited financial means to study or intern abroad and, since 2001, has enabled more than 30,000 outstanding Americans of diverse backgrounds to engage in a meaningful educational experience abroad. The program has successfully broadened U.S. participation in study abroad, while emphasizing countries and regions where fewer Americans traditionally study.
