This educational experience is brought to you in part by...

I'd like to take this opportunity to tell you all about the fine people who helped me to get where I am today. The Gilman International Scholarship program offers grants for "U.S. citizen undergraduate students of limited financial means to pursue academic studies abrod. Such international study is intended to better prepare U.S. students to assume significant roles in an increasingly global economy and interdependent world". Scholarship recipients may recieve up to $5,ooo in funding and are selected on the basis of applicant diversity, a statement of purpose essay, a follow-on project proposal essay, academic progress and performance, fields of study, country of destination, length of study and lack of previous undergraduate study abroad experience. All students are encouraged to apply so long as they qualify for a federal Pell grant. Recipients are expected to complete a follow-on service project to promote education abroad and to help promote the Gilman International Scholarship program. One of the many reasons I decided to keep this blog.

If you are at all interested in learning more about the Gilman Scholarship don't even hesitate to press on the below link:


How can I tell you about the good people at Gilman without also telling you about the folks at The World Affairs Forum who are just as fine if not finer. They graciously offer The Norman Woodberry scholarship for "deserving university students to encourage study abroad for those interested in pursuing an international career". It helps to be a resident of or studying in Fairfield County, CT or Westchester County, NY, attending a four-year university or college, able to demonstrate financial need as determined by the Scholarship Committee, a contributor to school and community life, and to have a minimum B average. Recipients of the scholarship are committed to provide the World Affairs Forum with an end-of-program report and to speak before a World Affairs Forum audience on a minimum of 1 occasion following completion of the program.
