Many Gilman scholars experience “re-entry” when returning home from studying abroad. Re-entry is a psychological stage of re-adjustment, similar to your initial adjustments to living abroad. As this is such a common experience, the Gilman Program has created an Alumni Re-Entry Resource Packet to assist you with your transition. A Student Guide to Study Abroad also serves as a great tool to help students transition back to the U.S. and showcase the student’s global growth and learning that help the student achieve his or her academic and professional goals.
The Gilman Program also hosts Re-Entry webinars twice a year for Gilman scholars who are preparing to return home or have recently returned home. You can view a recording of our most recent Re-Entry webinar below and be sure to sign up for the alumni newsletter to find out about upcoming webinars.
