Dr. Carmine Palumbo, East Georgia State College Director of Study Abroad, recently received a grant from the U.S. Department of State to attend a Gilman Scholarship Workshop at DePaul University in Chicago, Ill. on Friday, August 10, 2018. This workshop is one of three held nationally to train study abroad advisors to assist students in applying for Gilman Scholarships.
The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship is a grant program that enables students of limited financial means to study or intern abroad, thereby gaining skills critical to our national security and economic competitiveness. The Gilman Scholarship is open to U.S. citizen undergraduate students who are receiving Federal Pell Grant funding at two-year or four-year colleges or universities to participate in study and intern abroad programs worldwide.
Dr. Palumbo will hold a number of information sessions regarding the Gilman Scholarship during the Fall 2018 Semester at EGSC.
