Learn more about the Gilman International Scholarship, which is a program sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and awards Pell grant recipients to study abroad. The goal of the program is to diversify the kinds of students who study and intern abroad and the countries they go.   U.S. citizen community college students that are participating on programs of at least 14 days in length are eligible to apply.  Get information about this opportunity, how you can get the word out on your campus and help students create competitive applications and hear from a Gilman advisor from CCID member Shoreline Community College on what is being done to promote Gilman on their campus. 

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

NOTE: Spring/Early Summer 2017 applications are both due Tuesday, October 4, 2016 by 11:59 PM CDT. Advisors have until October 11, 2016 to certify Spring/Early Summer 2017 applications.
