Boise State Students Win National Funding for Studying Abroad

The Center for Global Education is pleased to announce that eight Boise State University students studying abroad through Global Learning Opportunities have been awarded scholarships from the Institute of International Education. Students were awarded the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship for their summer 2019 and fall 2019 study abroad programs.

The Gilman Scholarship is a competitive national grant program that aims to remove the financial constraints from study abroad and to broaden the availability of study abroad opportunities so that all students, regardless of ability to pay, can access the experience.

Gilman Scholars receive up to $5,000 to apply toward their program costs.
