The Gilman Scholarship application for summer, fall, and academic year programs has opened! The deadline to apply is March 4 at 11:59 p.m. CST (meaning 9:59 p.m. over here on the left coast). Two things to keep in mind about this scholarship: 1) Only students who receive a Pell Grant are eligible for this scholarship, and 2) more than one out of three applicants receives funding.
Shoreline students can use the up to $5,000 that they receive from the Gilman Scholarship for our short-term summer programs in Jamaica, South Africa, or Costa Rica, or for our fall quarter-long programs in Barcelona or Tokyo. And what do you have to do to get all this money to spend on seeing the world? Write a couple of essays and fill out an application form. Getting this much money to travel becomes far more complicated once you finish school, so take advantage of it while you can! And remember, we here at Shoreline Study Abroad will be happy to help out with the application process and read over your essays. Even Hemingway made silly mistakes sometimes, so it’s always good to have someone give your writing a second look.
