The online application for this next round is now open. This nationally competitive award was created to diversify the pool of students who study abroad. Students with a federal Pell Grant are eligible to apply and it is a wonderful opportunity particularly for those who have never studied abroad. It provides a scholarship of up to $5,000 for a study abroad program, ideally outside of Western Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.  Students should visit the Gilman web site at a list of languages and also be sure to check the link to the Department of State to make sure travel is permitted to that country.


In the last round, eight OU students applied and six won, including one student who was awarded the full amount ($5,000) and an extra $3,000 bump-up for a Critical Need Language (languages include Chinese, Japanese, and Russian).   Of the six winners, only one was from a regional campus! Staff members at the Office of Education Abroad are available to help students choose a program, which MUST be approved by Catherine Marshall in that office. Those interested should contact Alden Waitt at
