Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship

The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program offers grants for U.S. citizen undergraduate students of limited financial means to pursue academic studies or credit-bearing, career-oriented internships abroad. Such international exchange is intended to better prepare U.S. students to assume significant roles in an increasingly global economy and interdependent world. International experience is critically important in the educational and career development of American students, but it can also require a substantial financial investment. The Gilman Scholarship Program broadens the student population that studies and interns abroad by supporting undergraduates who might not otherwise participate due to financial constraints. The program aims to encourage students to choose non-traditional study and intern destinations, especially those outside of Western Europe, Australia and New Zealand. The Gilman Scholarship Program aims to support students who have been traditionally under-represented in education abroad, including but not limited to, students with high financial need, community college students, students in underrepresented fields such as the sciences and engineering, students with diverse ethnic backgrounds, and students with disabilities. The program seeks to assist students from a diverse range of public and private institutions from all 50 states, Washington, DC and Puerto Rico. Award recipients are chosen by a competitive selection process and must use the award to defray eligible study or intern abroad costs. These costs include program tuition, room and board, books, local transportation, insurance and international airfare.

Middlebury Schools Abroad- Cameroon

The C.V. Starr-Middlebury School in Africa--based in Yaoundé, Cameroon--affords students true cultural immersion alongside rigorous academic study. Cameroon is often described as 'Africa in miniature' because it exhibits all major climates of the continent. Home to roughly 240 ethnic groups, with as many distinct languages and dialects, diversity abounds. As its economic and political capital, Yaoundé is an ideal place for immersion into Francophone African life. Based at the Université catholique de l’Afrique centrale, with all classes conducted entirely in French, students on the Middlebury program in Cameroon will be able to take courses in several disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.
