Information on eligibility can be found here.

Tips for Submitting a great application



Scholarship Spotlights

Introducing our first ever #ScholarSpotlight for the month of October!

Meet Jerusha Matthews, a KSU senior studying Fisheries, Wildlife, & Conservation Biology with a Focus on Wildlife, who studied abroad after receiving the Gilman International Scholarship- Official Page.

This past summer, she had the opportunity to study for 4 weeks in Belize through the CELA Belize Program taking courses such as: Large Animal Veterinary Practices in the Tropics course and Wildlife Health, Ecology and Conservation.

“Receiving the Gilman made my study abroad experience possible. I had the passion and drive to study abroad, but my biggest issue was being able to finance it,” Jersusha said.

She was the only K-State student to receive this internationally competitive scholarship for the Summer 2016 term against over 4,500 other applicants.
