Thinking about in-person or virtual study abroad? Receive up to $5,000 (or $8,000 if you’re studying a Critical Need Language) to go abroad on an in-person or virtual program as a college student if you’re a U.S. citizen and Federal Pell Grant recipient!

The Gilman-McCain Scholarship application is also open! Receive $5,000 if you’re a child dependent of active duty military member and receive any type of Title IV Federal Financial Aid to go abroad on an in-person or virtual program.

The March 2021 Deadline application is open for applicants whose in-person or virtual programs start between May 1, 2021, to April 30, 2022.

Please be aware that the application deadline is in Pacific Time and take into consideration any time difference as students prepare to submit their applications.

This cycle encompasses programs during the following terms:

  • Summer 2021
  • Fall 2021
  • Academic Year 2021-2022
  • Spring 2022

If an applicant was not selected or declined an award during a previous application cycle, they may re-apply for the March 2021 deadline application as long as they continue to meet the eligibility requirements and their program falls within the start dates.

Applicants who were previously awarded a Gilman Scholarship but had to decline due to COVID-19 may re-apply for the March 2021 deadline application. They will also be given special priority consideration in the selection process.
