Florida State University Students (Daniela Castro, Jayda Craig and Hannah Dale) awarded the
U.S. Department of State’s Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to study abroad.
Ms.Castro, Ms. Craig and Ms. Dale, all students in the Department of Modern Languages and Linguistics, were three of over 250 American undergraduate students from 154 colleges and universities across the U.S. selected to receive the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs to study or intern abroad during the Summer 2017 Early Application cycle. Ms. Castro will study abroad in France, Ms. Craig will study abroad in Morocco and Ms. Dale will study abroad in Spain.
Gilman scholars receive up to $5,000 to apply towards their study abroad or internship program costs. The program offers grants for U.S. citizen undergraduate students of limited financial means to pursue academic studies or credit-bearing, career-oriented internships abroad. Such international exchange is intended to better prepare U.S. students to thrive in the global economy and interdependent world. Students receiving a Federal Pell Grant from two- and four-year institutions who will be studying abroad or participating in a career-oriented international internship for academic credit are eligible to apply. Scholarship recipients have the opportunity to gain a better understanding of other cultures, countries, languages, and economies -- making them better prepared to assume leadership roles within government and the private sector.
