Aid available for studying abroad from international scholarship

Students planning to study abroad in winter or Spring 2023 or during the 2023-24 academic year and who are Federal Pell Grant recipients can apply for the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program. The program will award over 3,600 scholarships of up to $5,000 for undergraduate students who are U.S. citizens and Federal Pell Grant recipients to study abroad. Military Veterans are given preference for scholarships when other qualifications are equal between applicants. Student need and the period spent abroad will determine the amount of money an applicant may receive. The goal of this program is to provide students with financial limitations the opportunity to study or intern abroad, which also supports historically underrepresented students in abroad education. There are additional awards available through the Gilman program. These are the Gilman-McCain Scholarship, awarded to students who receive Title IV or federal financial aid and are dependents of active-duty military service members, and the Critical Need Language award, which is an additional scholarship of up to $3,000 for students studying a critical need language while abroad. Students looking for more information can visit the Gilman Scholarship website. Students looking for information regarding study abroad opportunities while at Ithaca College can contact the Office of International Programs through email at
