Eleven UGA undergraduate students have been awarded the highly competitive Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship to help fund their summer 2019 international education programs.
They are some of 395 students from 152 universities across the U.S. to receive this scholarship from the summer early decision application cycle.
The Gilman Scholarship grants students up to $5,000 to put toward studying or interning abroad. Their goal is to diversify and expand the number of students in America who are able to participate in study abroad programs.
The program was administered through the Office of Global Engagement, which oversees and assists students with anything involving international education.
The summer early decision application recipients and their international education destinations are Tatiana Anthony, Tanzania; Marion Cassim, China; Jodie Ehorn, Ghana; Crystal Gomez, Spain; Jocelyn Guzman-Corral, Peru; Samira Kanetkar, Ghana; Evette Martinez, Croatia; Obianuju Okeke, South Africa; Omowunmi Oni, Bolivia; Katera Powell, South Africa; and Cecilia Turner, South Africa.
