A record number of Florida State University students are awarded the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to study abroad during the 2019-20 academic year. The 28 students are the most in the University’s history.
“The Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship is an instrumental tool for Pell Grant-receiving students to access international opportunities, and the success of these 28 individuals is pivotal as FSU becomes the largest institution to add an experiential learning requirement,” said Jesse Wieland, assistant director of the Office of National Fellowships according to an interview with Florida State University news. “These students demonstrate that experiential opportunities aren’t confined to the borders of Florida State University and are accessible to anyone despite their financial circumstance.”
Congratulations to Florida State University and the new Gilman scholars!
