About this Fellowship

This scholarship provides funding for current recipients of Pell Grants to study or intern abroad.

Gilman Scholarships expand opportunities for study abroad for students whose demonstrated financial need might otherwise preclude them from such an experience. The program recruits a diversity of participants and encourages participation by students in a broad range of fields of study in a wide range of countries. Students who have not studied abroad previously are encouraged to apply.

UofSC students must apply through the Education Abroad Office.

There are multiple application cycles, please be sure to apply for the cycle that corresponds to your intended study abroad semester.

Please note: Students applying for the Gilman must also complete the study abroad application process with the Education Abroad Office. See more information about the study abroad application process and their deadlines at the Education Abroad website.
