We are pleased to announce SEVEN Auggies were selected to receive the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship in the last round of applications to receive up to $5,000 toward a study abroad program! The applicant pool is highly competitive, but the hard work and determination of these students paved the way for their amazing accomplishment.
Aaron Davis is a Management/Marketing double major who plans to study at Augsburg’s exchange partner American College of Greece in Athens this Fall 2022
Blessing Kasongoma is a International Business/Marketing double major who plans to study at Augsburg’s exchange partner American College of Greece in Athens this Fall 2022
Mohamed (Khadar) Muhumed is an MIS major who just left for a short-term faculty-led program in Greece with Augsburg faculty in Business.
Since 2008, eighty-two Augsburg students have received Gilman scholarships. This round alone, Auggies won over $30,000!
It takes a village to support students in their application process. Many thanks to Maren Stoddard Mack, Emilie Lenz and the whole financial aid team, staff in TRIO, MSS, Academic Advising, and URGO and, of course, faculty mentors/advisors.
Congrats to all seven winners!!
