On February 19, Virginia Tech will host a virtual workshop for approximately 60 study abroad advisors on best practices in supporting candidates for two prestigious U.S. Department of State programs, the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program and the Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Program. This workshop is part of the State Department’s continuing efforts to increase and diversify the institutions and students participating in both the Gilman and CLS programs.
Workshop attendees will share best practices for promoting the Gilman and CLS Programs, supporting applicants, and crafting competitive essays. The workshop will also provide advisors with in-depth resources for the Gilman and CLS Programs and give advisors the opportunity to discuss how to best advise students during COVID-19.
