Expanding Global Engagement

SingaporeTwo College of Business students were among the winners that were selected to receive the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Award to study or work as interns abroad during the 2019 spring semester.

Covey Brown, a marketing major from Cheyenne, participated in a bilateral exchange program at Asia Pacific University in Beppu, Japan.

Javaun Garcia, a management major from Cheyenne, participated in a bilateral exchange program at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.

The two College of Business students are among 844 American undergraduate students from 335 colleges and universities across the United States selected to receive Gilman scholarships for the Spring term. The congressionally funded Gilman Program broadens the U.S. student population studying and interning abroad by providing scholarships to outstanding undergraduate Pell Grant recipients who, due to financial constraints, might not otherwise study abroad.

"I am blessed to have had the opportunity to widen my world during my time abroad,” said Brown.

Since the program’s establishment in 2001, over 1,300 U.S. institutions have sent more than 28,000 Gilman scholars who represent the rich diversity of the United States to 145 countries around the globe.

“The Gilman Program aims to make study abroad, and its career advantages, more accessible and inclusive for American students. These diverse American students gain critical skills overseas that expand their career options and ability to make an impact in their home communities,” says Heidi Manley, the chief of USA Study Abroad at the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

The Gilman Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and is supported in its implementation by the Institute of International Education.
