University Named Gilman Scholarship Top Producer

Syracuse University has been named a Gilman Scholarship Top Producer for the 2021-22 academic year in the medium institution category. In that application cycle, 24 University students received and used the award to fund study abroad experiences.

The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship offers study abroad awards of up to $5,000 to undergraduate students in good standing who are U.S. citizens and Pell Grant (federal financial aid) recipients, and up to $8,000 for undergraduates studying abroad and learning critical need languages (such as Mandarin Chinese or Arabic).

The opportunities that the Gilman Scholarship provides align well with the University’s newly released academic strategic plan, “Leading With Distinction.”

“Syracuse University has long prioritized study abroad as fundamental to our mission of preparing students to be globally engaged citizens. We are also committed to increasing the diversity of our study abroad cohorts and to making international education an option for all of our students, regardless of their financial circumstances. The Gilman Scholarship sits at the intersection of these goals,” says Vice Chancellor, Provost and Chief Academic Officer Gretchen Ritter.
