Congratulations to UMass Amherst Gilman Scholarship Award Recipients

Thursday, May 5, 2022

On May 4th, the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship announced its awardees for the March 2022 application deadline. We are very proud to announce that 11 UMass Amherst students were awarded scholarships. They join a community of 34,000 students, scholars, and alumni from around the country.

The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship is funded by the US Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). For more than 50 years, the ECA has sought to cultivate mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries to promote friendly, and peaceful relations. A Gilman Scholarship enables American students of limited financial means to gain proficiency in diverse languages and cultures, skills that are critically important to their academic and career development.

If you think you might be eligible for a Gilman Scholarship and you are interested in applying, please contact Education Abroad at the International Programs Office.
