January 30, 2017

Gilman International Scholarship and Freeman-ASIA Applications open!

Gilman and Freeman-ASIA


Are you an undergraduate student looking to study or co-op abroad?

We are pleased to announce that the online applications for the Gilman International Scholarship and the Freeman-ASIA Awards are now open for undergraduate students participating in credit-bearing study abroad programs and international internships.


The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship aims to diversify the kinds of students who study and intern abroad and the countries and regions where they go by offering awards (up to $8000) to U.S. undergraduates who might otherwise not participate due to financial constraints. Students must receive a Pell Grant to be eligible.

Deadline: Summer 2017 and Fall/AY 2017-18 applications are both due Tuesday, March 7, 2017 by 11:59pm (central).


The Freeman Awards for Study in Asia (Freeman-ASIA) provides grants of up to $7000 to support American undergraduates with demonstrated financial need who are planning to study overseas in East or Southeast Asia. The program's goal is to increase the number of Americans with first-hand exposure to and understanding of Asia and its peoples and cultures.

Deadline: Summer 2017 applications are due Wednesday, March 1, 2017 by 5:00pm (eastern).
