Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholar

Scholarship helps student to study and serve in South Africa

Studying at the University of Cape Town on a Gilman International Scholarship opened up a world of academic opportunity for Bijul Enaohwo, who attends Spelman College with the help of a Pell Grant. Equally valuable was the insight she gained while volunteering to build homes in townships and helping people with HIV/AIDS who had been evicted from their houses or fired from their jobs to fight discrimination. "Both of these experiences were priceless," she reports. "They humbled me in so many ways and gave me a chance to help people who were less fortunate than I am."
