Gilman Alumnus Bryan Wood (South Korea, 2019) received the State of Maryland Governor’s Citation for his achievement and success as a Gilman Scholar!
“The Gilman Scholarship is life-changing. It has given me the chance to prepare for several academic and professional opportunities including applying for the Critical Language Scholarship Program and possibly working in education abroad. I enjoy learning languages and creative writing, and the pursuit of both has influenced my approach in obtaining opportunities like Gilman,” said Bryan Wood. “Overall, I am happy with my application essays for Gilman, but I am sure what ultimately earned me the scholarship was my target audience for my follow-on service project. My message to them was that as a transfer winning Gilman, I found a way to highlight the potential in following a more non-traditional path in education.”
