The Gilman Scholarship is a scholarship sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State.

The scholarship offers awards to U.S. undergraduates who might otherwise not participate due to financial reasons.

  • Students must be Pell Grant recipients to be eligible to apply.
