Stockton Student Received the Benjamin Gilman International Scholarship!

Eline Xia

 

Eline Xia, a junior student majoring in Sustainability and Political Science at Stockton University, received the Benjamin Gilman International Scholarship! She will use this scholarship for her semester-long study abroad program in Greece in Spring 2023.  

Eline shared with us that “Being a first generation student of color, I know this experience is not possible for many like me, but with this scholarship, I am able to travel and have experiences I could not afford to do otherwise.“ 

The U.S. Department of State’s Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship is a grant program that enables students of limited financial means to study or intern abroad, thereby gaining skills critical to our national security and economic competitiveness. The Gilman Scholarship Program is open to U.S. citizen undergraduate students who are receiving Federal Pell Grant funding at a two-year or four-year college or university to participate in study and intern abroad programs worldwide.

If you're interested in applying to the Gilman Scholarship, please join us at the Gilman Scholarship Info Session on Tuesday, February 7, 2023 at 12:30pm in F-226.

IIE American Passport Project

Stockton University is proud to be an #IIEPassportProject institution to receive fundingfrom Institute of International Education to support students to get their U.S. passport and plan to #studyabroad!

Stockton University has prioritized the goal to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in education abroad programs. Being awarded in this project, Stockton will be able to encourage 25 Pell-eligible and first-year students to go abroad who would otherwise not participate in the global learning experience as part of their university education. 

We hope this grant will give our students not only the critical skills they will need to thrive in an increasingly interconnected world, but lifelong friendships and meaningful experiences that could shape the trajectory of their lives.
