The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship, awards scholarships of up to $5,000 (and an additional $3,000 for critical languages). This amount can really help finance an experience abroad. With commitment and preparation, Brandeis students tend to do well in the application process as evident by the extensive list of recipients below.

This application is more involved (you can't finish it the night before!) and students need to meet with your advisor for help with completing their applications. Visit Gilman's website for eligibility, prize amounts, to create an account, and more information. The scholarship is available for Pell Grant Eligible students who are studying abroad for credit in the fall, spring, or summer terms.
