Looking for some motivation this Monday? The Diamond Dogma, a Huffington Port article by Gilman Scholarship alumni Josue Calderon, reflects on the lessons he learned from his father and mentors during his time playing Little League baseball.

“What matters most is that you remain positive and continue to persist and move forward in the face of adversity because life truly is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond.” – Josue Calderon

The Gilman Scholarship Program seeks to diversify the kinds of students who study abroad & the countries and regions where they go. The Gilman Program offers scholarships for students who have been traditionally underrepresented in education abroad.
Introduction
The Gilman Scholarship Program seeks to diversify the kinds of students who study abroad and the countries and regions where they go. Such international study is intended to better prepare U.S. students to assume significant roles in an increasingly global economy and interdependent world.

The program aims to encourage students to choose non-traditional study abroad destinations, especially those outside of Western Europe, Australia and New Zealand. The Gilman Scholarship Program aims to support students who have been traditionally under-represented in study abroad, including but not limited to, students with high financial need, community college students, students in under-represented fields such as the sciences and engineering, students with diverse ethnic backgrounds, and students with disabilities. The program seeks to assist students from a diverse range of public and private institutions from all 50 states, District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The Gilman International Scholarship provides grants for U.S. undergraduate students who are receiving Federal Pell Grant funding at a two-year or four-year college or university to participate in study abroad programs worldwide.

This congressionally funded program is sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of State and is administered by the Institute of International Education through its office in Houston, TX.
