AUGSBURG STUDENT KYLE HUISMAN AWARDED U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE’S GILMAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP TO STUDY ABROAD!
The U.S. Department of State is pleased to announce that Kyle Huisman from Augsburg University was selected to receive the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to study abroad this Fall 2019. Kyle is a Film major and will be studying in Kofu, Japan on Augsburg’s Exchange program with Yamanashi Gakuin University (iCLA).
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 seven Augsburg students have received Gilman scholarships, totaling $222,500.
