Ten NC State students received funding to study or intern abroad during the 2020-21 academic year. The prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship awards each student up to $5,000 and makes study abroad, and its career advantages, more accessible and inclusive for American students. Since its inception in 2001, the program has sent more than 31,000 Gilman scholars who represent the rich diversity of the United States to 151 countries around the globe.
Because the education abroad landscape has changed so much since the students first applied, many of the students are working with the Study Abroad Office to select an appropriate in-person or virtual program for a future term.
Here is a snapshot of how some of the scholarship recipients will be planning to use their award:
