Sol Education Abroad celebrates Gilman Scholarship recipients!

Among the many scholarships specifically for Study Abroad is the Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship. The Gilman Scholarship Program offers awards for undergraduate study abroad and was established in 2000. This scholarship provides awards for undergraduate students (from the U.S.) who are receiving Federal Pell Grant funding at a two-year or four-year college or university to participate in study abroad programs worldwide.

Among many other great qualities, the recipients of this award are high academic achievers, creative, hard-working and have a drive to explore and learn about the world and its abundance of cultures.

We’re very excited to celebrate & share the Sol Education Abroad scholars that have received this generous award in support of helping fund their Study Abroad experience.

  • “The application requires a proposal of a Follow On Project to be
    completed the semester after the student returns that applies what
    they have learned and gained from their study abroad experience. My
    Follow On Project focuses on my community as well as my university. At
    Texas A&M, I volunteer at College Hills Elementary School and when I
    return, I am going to volunteer in one of the English as a Second
    Language rooms to practice my newly improved Spanish skills and to
    help kids in the community to learn English. I also volunteer at the
    Baptist Student Ministries teaching English to international students
    with other Aggies. My Spanish skills will obviously help me in
    teaching English; it already has helped me help others multiple times,
    but when I return, I will be able to have more in depth conversations
    in Spanish. I am going to keep a detailed blog asemesterincostarica.blogspot.com and am going to try my best to get
    it promoted through Texas A&M’s Study Abroad website as well as the
    Baptist Student Ministries website. I think that my experience will be
    encouraging to other students to study abroad and that my story of
    funding will also be an encouragement!”- Jessica Endres

We would like to congratulate them on their hard work and look forward to having the future students join us this Spring!

¡Felicidades!

Keep up the good work!
