For the first time, the Global Education Office (GEO) will offer guaranteed funding for W&M Summer faculty-led programs to W&M students who meet specific criteria.
We want to make sure study abroad is accessible to all students. Summer study abroad can be financially challenging since students typically use most of their financial aid during the fall and spring semesters. GEO hopes to encourage eligible students to apply for the Benjamin A Gilman International Scholarship by offering guaranteed funding. Eligible W&M students who receive a Pell Grant and submit a quality application for the Gilman will receive a guaranteed $4,000 scholarship if they do not receive the Gilman.
