Knox Students: Are you a PELL (US federal aid) recipient? Are you planning to study abroad in Summer 2020, Fall 2020, Spring 2021 or for the Academic Year 2020-2021? The Gilman International Scholarship Application System is now open - and if you are eligible you should apply for funding through this competitive and prestigious federal program!

We will hold two Gilman Application Workshops:

Gilman Info Session: 4:00-5:00 PM Thursday, February 6

Gilman Writing Workshop: 4:00-5:30 PM Wednesday, February 19

The first session will focus on what the Gilman Scholarship program is and how it works. Knox Gilman recipients who have recently returned from study abroad will talk about their drafting process: how they created a compelling narrative, connected it to program choice and academic and career goals, and outlined a strong and effective follow-on project. 

The second session will be a writing workshop. Come with with drafts of your application essay! We will provide advice and assistance, with tips on how to create a distinctive essay. The Gilman competition is competitive; the award is prestigious (and is great prep for a Fulbright application) - don't forget about the many resources you have on campus as you work on your essay! (Red Room! Red Room!)
