Brandeis students study abroad this fall with support from prestigious Gilman Scholarships

Four Brandeis students will receive the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarships sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs to study or intern abroad during the fall 2017 academic term. The Gilman Scholarship provides students with up to $5,000 toward their study abroad program costs.
The recipients, their hometowns, study abroad locations and programs include:
  •  Sekou Kaba ’18  of East Orange, New Jersey, Sociology major and Business minor; Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE)/ Liberal Arts in Seville, Spain.
  •  Deborah-Virginia Kawalie-Fataki ’19 of Atlanta, Georgia, sociology major and legal studies and African/Afro-American studies minor; School for International Training/South Africa; multiculturalism and human rights
  •  Sindy Sura ’19 of Dallas, Texas, anthropology major and business minor; Institute for the International Education of Students (IES)/Milan: business studies
  • Chantal Tepper ’18 of Miami Beach, Florida, business major and legal studies minor; American Councils (ACTR)/ business Russian language and internship in Moscow
Each year the Office of Study Abroad assists students in applying to the Gilman scholarship, as well as many other study abroad scholarships. In an effort to diversify the students who can study abroad and the countries and regions to which they travel, the office works closely with students to make study abroad feasible for all who wish to pursue it.
