The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program is pleased to announce the U.S. colleges and universities that sent the most students overseas in the academic year 2017-2018. For a second year, the Gilman Program applauds the higher education institutions that made international study and internships more accessible and inclusive for the highest number of American students of all backgrounds. Since the Gilman Program’s inception in 2001, over 28,000 American undergraduate students with high financial need have studied abroad in nearly 150 countries.
The Top Producers category includes sending abroad the most first-generation college students, racial or ethnic minority students, students with disabilities, and students studying in STEM fields through the Gilman Program. This year, the list of four-year institutions sending the highest number of Gilman Scholars abroad are Berea College (KY), Emory University (GA), and the University of California, Berkeley (CA). Portland Community College (OR) topped the list of associate’s colleges and Grand Valley State University (MI) took the top spot in sending the most veterans on Gilman Scholarships, a spotlight this year.
