Gilman International Scholarship Recipients Announced for Spring 2023
Syracuse Abroad congratulates the 10 students who have been awarded Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarships for upcoming study abroad programs in spring 2023. The total amount received by the students is $41,000, with the average award size being $4,000.
Six spring 2023 students were selected from the March 2022 application cycle and are joined by four additional students who were selected from the October cycle, for a total of 10 winners from Syracuse University. (One student was awarded the scholarship but is no longer studying abroad in spring 2023.) Five alternates were also selected.
The recipients, along with the country where they will be studying, are the following:
- Violet Cabot ’24, Italy
- Laurel Howell ’24, Italy
- Grant Maxheimer ’24, Spain
- Lizmarie Montemayor ’24, Italy
- Jane Morales-Pinto ’24, Italy
- Akuoma Ogbu ’23, Australia
- Lauren Perry ’23, France
- Fidel Rivera ’24, Spain
- Melanie Torres ’24, Italy
Syracuse Abroad partners with the Center for Fellowship and Scholarship Advising (CFSA) to advise students during the application process. Throughout the recent cycles, CFSA and Syracuse Abroad held information sessions and writing workshops to help students prepare their applications and essay submissions.
“These results indicate that Gilman has returned to its pre-Covid award rates and highlight the renewed student participation in study abroad, both at Syracuse University and other institutions,” says Adam Crowley, CFSA academic and scholarship advisor.
Gilman Scholarships are open to undergraduate students who are U.S. citizens receiving Federal Pell Grant funding at a two-year or four-year college or university to participate in study or internship programs abroad.
All students planning to study abroad who meet the qualifications are encouraged to apply. Gilman encourages applications from students from diverse ethnic backgrounds; students planning to study in non-traditional destinations; students in fields underrepresented in study abroad; and students with high financial need. Students studying a critical need language (such as Arabic, Korean, Japanese or Portuguese) can apply for an additional $3,000 supplement for a total possible award of $8,000.
Funding for fall, spring and summer study abroad opportunities is available. The application deadline is the first Tuesday of March for summer/fall/full-year programs; the first Tuesday of October for spring semester and summer (early application).
