Application Details: As part of the application process, the study abroad scholarship advisor and a financial aid advisor (Lois DeGhetto or Patti Brady-Glassman) must certify your application (verify that you are participating on a valid program and are receiving a Pell grant).
Gilman applicants must prepare a proposal for a "Follow-On Project" - an event or activity to promote education abroad and the Gilman scholarship upon return from abroad.
