The Benjamin Gilman Scholarship Program has awarded seven EWU students with study abroad scholarships, totalling approximately $23,000. Recipients will be studying in Japan and Romania over the summer quarter, and in Australia, China, Costa Rica, Italy, and Denmark over the fall quarter.

The Gilman Program awards scholarships to students who meet the eligibility requirements and are studying or interning outside of the U.S. during the awarded term. Since fall quarter of 2012, a total of 14 EWU students have received a Gilman Award.

We are proud of our awarded EWU students. The Gilman Program strongly encourages applicants from diverse backgrounds.

We wish our travelling students wonderful adventures and educational experiences abroad.
