Honors College Students Awarded Gilman Study Abroad Scholarships

Two Honors College students have been awarded U.S. State Department Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to study abroad in the summer of 2018. Leni Redmond and Sarah Sanchez, rising seniors, are among 10 students at UIC and more than 1,200 undergraduate students, from 363 higher education institutions, to receive the prestigious scholarship.

Redmond, pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, will study in Gaborone, Botswana.

Sanchez, pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences, will study in Oaxaca, Mexico.

The U.S. Department of State’s Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship is a grant program that enables students of limited financial means to study or intern abroad, thereby gaining skills critical to our national security and economic competitiveness. The Gilman Scholarship Program is open to U.S. citizen undergraduate students who are receiving Federal Pell Grant funding at a two-year or four-year college or university to participate in study and intern abroad programs worldwide.
