 The Gilman International Scholarship Program aims to diversify the kind of students who study abroad and the countries and regions where they go. The program serves students who have been under-represented in study abroad which includes but is not limited to: students with high financial need, community college students, students in under-represented fields such as the sciences and engineering, students from diverse ethnic backgrounds, students attending minority-serving institutions, and students with disabilities. The Gilman Program has recently expanded its summer awards to include all academic majors.  The Gilman Program seeks to assist students from a diverse range and type of two-year and four-year public and private institutions from all 50 states.
