Publish on Your Website

One of the best ways to promote the Gilman Scholarship Program on your campus is to add a link to the Gilman website on your institution's/office's website. By adding a link, your students can easily obtain information on this program at times when they may not be able to contact your office directly. Please see Logo Usage Guidelines for information about using the Gilman logo.


Coordinating With Your Financial Aid Office

Gilman Advisors have indicated that by targeting Pell Grant recipients they were able to reach and encourage a broader and more diverse range of students to consider study abroad opportunities on their campus. Check out the email templates to help tailor your message and supply to your colleagues in the Financial Aid Office.

Many institutions have found that informational meetings highlighting study abroad scholarship programs, such as the Gilman Scholarship Program, and study abroad opportunities, to be an effective way of reaching out to Pell Grant recipients. Often a representative from the financial aid office is also available at this session to discuss what types of federal, state and institutional aid can be applied to study abroad opportunities on your campus.

In this way, study abroad offices are able to leverage scholarship programs to reach out to groups of students that may be less likely to consider studying abroad an option due to financial constraints. Many Gilman Scholarship recipients indicate that they would never have thought of walking into the study abroad office had they not first heard about the Gilman Scholarship or other funding sources.
