The Chinese Government Scholarship will cover her tuition, room and board, and the Gilman Scholarship will cover her airfare and other items.
“I would not have been able to study abroad without these two scholarships,” said the 20-year old from Savannah, Georgia, who is majoring in security and strategic studies with a concentration in Chinese.
The Chinese Government Scholarship is given to only 10 students nationally from among the 400-plus institutions in the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. It allows students to study the Chinese language for either one academic year or one semester.
The Gilman is open to U.S. undergraduate students who receive Federal Pell Grant funding at a two-year or four-year college or university to participate in study and intern abroad programs worldwide.
