The San Mateo County Community College District (SMCCCD) Study Abroad Program is hosting a webinar and student panel to provide details on applying for Study Abroad scholarships, including the Gilman International Scholarship, a grant program through the U.S. Department of State that enables students of limited financial means to study or intern abroad. The program is committed to reshaping study abroad to make it more accessible and inclusive for all students.

SMCCCD Study Abroad assists students in applying for this prestigious scholarship every March and October; 27 students were selected for the Gilman Scholarship program last year.

Please join us to learn more about the Gilman Scholarship Program and other opportunities for funding in-person and virtual Study Abroad experiences and hear from our Gilman Scholarship alumni about their experiences applying for the Gilman Scholarship, studying abroad, and what they’re doing now!
