February 19, 2021 – The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs is proud to announce a new partnership in support of the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program. Through this new arrangement, the Embassy of Israel to the United States will fund at least five additional scholarships for U.S. undergraduate students to study and/or intern for academic credit in Israel through the Gilman Program. The Embassy of Israel to the United States will also fund Gilman Scholars to study Hebrew under the Critical Need Language Award (CNLA), which is a supplemental award for in-country language study under the Gilman Program.
This additional funding for the Gilman-Israel scholarship supports a wider effort between the United States and Israel to increase and diversify international student mobility among Israeli and American higher education institutions. This partnership expands study abroad opportunities for American students to gain critical skills.
