The Gilman Scholarship Program offers grants to U.S. citizen undergraduate students as a financial means to pursue academic studies abroad. The program seeks to assist students from a diverse range of public and provide institutions from all 50 states. Award recipients are chosen by a competitive selection process and must use the award towards eligible study abroad costs that include tuition, room and board, books, local transportation, insurance, and international airfare.
The University of South Dakota encourages and supports students to study abroad to prepare them for an increasingly global and diverse world.
