Congratulations Alana Goodson: Gilman Scholarship Awardee

submitted by dvorak@augsburg.edu

AUGSBURG STUDENT ALANA GOODSON AWARDED U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE’S GILMAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP TO STUDY ABROAD!

The U.S. Department of State is pleased to announce that Alana Goodson from Augsburg University is one of only two undergraduate students in Minnesota selected to receive the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to study or intern abroad this summer 2018. Alana is a freshman majoring in Biology. She will be studying this summer with the International Partners in Service Learning program in Cusco, Peru.

Gilman Scholars receive up to $5,000 to apply towards their study abroad or internship program. The Gilman scholarship supports American undergraduate students of limited financial means to study or intern abroad and, since 2001, has enabled more than 24,000 outstanding Americans of diverse backgrounds to engage in a meaningful educational experience abroad. The program has successfully broadened U.S. participation in study abroad, while emphasizing countries and regions where fewer Americans traditionally study. 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 (IIE).

Since 2008, fifty two Augsburg students have received Gilman scholarships, totaling $206,000.
