Email/blog announcement (feel free to edit):
Are you planning to study abroad during the spring of 2014 or later? Are you a Federal Pell Grant recipient? Do you want help covering the costs of your study abroad program?
If you answered yes to all three of the above questions, you should come to the Gilman Scholarship Workshop!
Every year, the Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship is awarded to hundreds of undergraduate students who want to study abroad but have limited financial means. You could be one of those students – all you have to do is apply. The next application cycle ends October 1, so if you’re interested, now is the perfect time to start planning.
To learn more, come to the Gilman Scholarship Workshop on Wednesday, June 5th, from 1:30-2:30 in MGH 171. At the workshop, you will:
– read and analyze sample essays
– begin working on your own application
– learn money-saving travel tricks
– talk to a past recipient about her experience
The workshop will be led by Celia Gurney, a UW junior who studied in northern Brazil this past fall.
