Gilman Scholars have proposed and carried out a wide range of Follow-on Service Projects. As long as the applicant’s proposal will meet the goals of the Follow-on Service Project, there is no right or wrong projects. However, we encourage all applicants to propose a unique Follow-on Service Project that highlights their individual background, experiences, talents and skills. Listed below are some examples of projects Gilman Scholars have carried out. This is by no means an exhaustive list and we look forward to continuing to receive unique, individual proposals from all applicants. Remember, all projects must promote international education and the Gilman Scholarship.
Financial assistance is a major concern for most students who plan to continue their education beyond high school. This Online Scholarship Guide contains scholarships announced through the Student Services Department of your high school. Scholarship name, discipline, value, eligibility criteria, approximate due date and contact are given for each scholarship. Review this information carefully. Not all applications will be available at the beginning of the school year since many of the sponsoring organizations wait until close to the deadline to send them. In addition, scholarship providers sometimes change application deadlines, so be sure to contact your school counselor about all scholarships in which you have an interest.
