UNCG announces 13 Gilman Scholars

Thirteen UNCG students will receive the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship to study abroad next semester.

The Congressionally funded Gilman Program broadens the U.S. student population studying and interning abroad by providing scholarships to outstanding undergraduate Pell Grant recipients who, due to financial constraints, might not otherwise study abroad.

With thirteen recipients, UNCG has more Gilman Scholars than any other college or university in the Carolinas.

UNCG is ranked 14th nationally out of 407 institutions in the number of Gilman Scholarships awarded.

Since 2012, 130 UNCG Gilman Scholars have received over $430,000 in scholarship funding through the Gilman program.
