Six University of Wyoming students have been selected to receive the U.S. Department of State’s Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to study or work as interns abroad during this academic year. The recipients will study or intern abroad in Australia, Spain, Japan, China, and the United Kingdom.
“The Gilman Program aims to make study abroad, and its career advantages, more accessible and inclusive for American students. These diverse American students gain critical skills overseas that expand their career options and ability to make an impact in their home communities,” says Heidi Manley, the chief of USA Study Abroad at the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
In September 2019, the University of Wyoming hosted a two-day U.S. Future Leaders in Energy and Natural Resources Seminar for approximately 75 alumni of two prestigious U.S. Department of State programs, the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program and the Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Program.
