The Gilman Study Abroad Scholarship

The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program seeks to diversify
the kinds of students who study abroad and the countries and regions where
they go. Specifically, the Gilman Program offers scholarships for students
who have been traditionally underrepresented in education abroad.

The Gilman Program is open to all U.S. citizen undergraduates, in good
academic standing, who meet the criteria listed below:

* The applicant must be receiving a Federal Pell Grant or provide proof that
he/she will be receiving a Pell Grant at the time of application or during
the term of his/her study abroad.
* The applicant is applying to or has been accepted into a study abroad
program eligible for credit by the student’s accredited institution of
higher education in the United States.
* The applicant is studying abroad for at least 28 days in one country.
Programs going to more than one country are eligible if the student will be
studying in one country for at least 28 consecutive days.
* The applicant is studying abroad in any country except Cuba or a country
on the U.S. Department of State’s current Travel Warning list.

The Carpe Diem Foundation Scholarship

During 2010, the foundation intends to award 12 to 24 merit-based
scholarship grants to qualified candidates. Scholarship grants are renewable
for up to four years.

The grants will be awarded to students who have demonstrated outstanding
achievements, exceptional leadership ability and a serious commitment to
community service.

The grants shall be used for tuition, books, computers and room and board at
accredited educational institutions in the United States.

While the grants will be awarded based upon merit, priority among equally
qualified candidates will be given to students whose parents are employed in
education, government, social services, public health, the administration of
justice and the fine arts.

Recipients of scholarship grants must be enrolled as full-time students,
maintain a B+ average and participate in service activity. They must submit
grade transcripts at the end of each semester or quarter. Violation of the
terms of the grant will result in immediate termination from the program.
