UO named a top producer of Gilman Scholarship recipients

From Around the O

The University of Oregon has been named one of nation’s 20 top producers of Gilman Scholars as part of the 20th anniversary celebration of the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship.

The announcement comes after the UO surpassed its record for the most Gilman awards in a single year with 30 students receiving the scholarship in 2021 alone. The U.S. Department of State, which runs the Gilman program, recognized the UO as one of the 20 top-producing schools in the large university category with 293 Gilman Scholars since the program began in 2001.

The Gilman Scholarship is one of the most competitive national scholarships for undergraduates looking to fund their study or internship abroad experiences. The scholarship makes study abroad more accessible to outstanding and diverse American students with high financial need who otherwise would not have the funding for an international academic experience.

“We believe that transformative international experiences should be accessible to all students,” said Dennis Galvan, dean and vice provost for global engagement. “We’re delighted to see that many UO students have had the opportunity to study abroad in large part because of the Gilman Scholarship.”
