The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship, funded by the U.S. Department of State and administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE) offers awards for undergraduate study abroad participants. The scholarship aims to support students of limited financial means, students who have been traditionally under-represented in study abroad, and students traveling to non-traditional study abroad destinations.
