Are you eligible?

Why should you apply?

  • We had 9 CSUCI students win this scholarship this past year alone, and one in four who apply get some amount.
  • No letters of rec are required. Only essays!
  • One CSUCI student had her entire winter study abroad program paid for through the scholarship. She didn’t pay a dime!

Can you get help on the scholarship application?

  • Absolutely! Sign up for a virtual scholarship workshop . I will go over the application process, what makes a strong application, and exemplar essays.
  • I have served as a selection panelist for Gilman, and I can give you the inside scoop on what the readers are looking for in a strong applicant.

The rest of the world is waiting for you, and this scholarship can help you get there!
