GVSU students receive competitive scholarship

Twelve Grand Valley State University students recently received a combined total of $40,000 in scholarships from the Benjamin A. Gilman International program. To be eligible for a Gilman scholarship, students must meet certain criteria such as U.S. citizenship and plan to study for at least four weeks in a country that isn’t on the State Department’s travel warning list. GVSU is a nationally top-ranked producer of Gilman scholars. The deadline for the next Gilman Scholarship is February 25, 2014. Students are encouraged to complete application information well in advance of the deadline. For more information about the Gilman program, visit www.iie.org/en/Programs/Gilman-Scholarship-Program.
