UC Merced Recognized for Receiving First Gilman Awards

UC Merced Recognized for Receiving First Gilman Awards

Five UC Merced study abroad students were the first in UC Merced's history to receive the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship for study abroad. The five students — who are going to Egypt, South Korea, Spain, and Turkey — received a total of $19,000 from the scholarship which aims to increase participation among underrepresented and non-traditional students or students who study in non-traditional locations.
