Eight University of Notre Dame students have been awarded spring Gilman Scholarships to study abroad, for a total of 15 students so far for the 2020-21 academic year. Two Notre Dame students have been named alternates for the award. Winners whose study abroad programs have been canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic can defer the award to a later semester or decline it. Either way, they remain Gilman Scholars.
In applying for the scholarship, the winners and alternates worked closely with the Flatley Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement (CUSE), which promotes the intellectual development of Notre Dame undergraduates through scholarly engagement, research, creative endeavors and the pursuit of fellowships
“Everyone put in hard work despite the tenuous circumstances of study abroad, and I am very happy to say that 90 percent of our applicants received recognition,” said Elise Rudt, national fellowships program coordinator with CUSE. “It was a pleasure to work with them throughout the application process, and as the summer/fall application has just opened, I am excited to support the next round of students in their pursuit of the Gilman Scholarship.”
