This fall, nine University of Richmond (UR) students will be studying abroad with the support of the Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship. The nine students are the most in the University’s history.
“Gilman Scholarships are wonderful opportunities for our students to marry their academic interests with the necessary financial support to study abroad,” said Dana Kuchem, director of the Office of Scholars and Fellowships according to UR’s campus newspaper. “These scholarships are competitive and University of Richmond students are compelling applicants.”
More than 65 percent of University of Richmond students complete a study abroad experience before graduating. The University of Richmond has had 33 Gilman Scholars since the Gilman Program started in 2001.
Nearly 1,000 outstanding U.S. undergraduate students were selected to receive scholarships to participate in credit-bearing study abroad programs and career-oriented internships in countries around the world in Fall 2019 and Academic Year 2019-2020.
