We had delicious pizza and a fantastic presentation by Mary Fedorko from SU Abroad. We were all surprised and delighted to hear that the Gilman has almost a 40% acceptance rate. Many students are interested in applying for the Gilman and/or Freeman-Asia scholarships so we are going to organize a writing workshop to help with these essays—stay tuned!
If you couldn’t make the session, remember that you must be a US citizen and Pell grant recipient to apply for the Gilman or Freeman-Asia. Both fund up to $5,000 for study abroad. Both deadlines are in early October, so it’s time to get started.

As always, contact a CFSA advisor to get started.
