Two Fords Win Competitive Gilman Scholarships
Pola Lem '13 and Naila Ijaz '14 have been awarded Gilman Scholarships for the 2013-2014 school year!
The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program offers grants for U.S. citizen undergraduate students to pursue academic studies abroad. Such international study is intended to better prepare U.S. students to assume significant roles in an increasingly global economy and interdependent world.
Award recipients are chosen by a competitive selection process and must use the award to defray eligible study abroad costs. These costs include program tuition, room and board, books, local transportation, insurance and international airfare.
This congressionally funded program is sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of State and is administered by the Institute of International Education through its office in Houston, TX.
Pola Lem will be studying in Russia, and Naila Ijaz will be studying in Sweden.
