Gilman – Global Wales Awards

The Global Wales program, a partnership consisting of Universities Wales, the Welsh Government, the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales and the British Council have introduced this prestigious scholarship program for high-achieving U.S. students wishing to study in Wales.

The U.S. Department of State’s Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program enables outstanding American students with limited financial resources to study overseas for up to one academic year as part of their undergraduate studies. The Gilman Program is making study abroad more accessible and inclusive for American students.

This scholarship opportunity supports American undergraduate students of limited financial means for short-term, credit-bearing study at a Welsh university. The award allows students from accredited U.S. higher education institutions to strengthen their skills and expand their educational experiences while living and learning in Wales.

Successful applicants will receive a study grant of up to $5,000, to be used toward tuition, housing, travel, and related costs for up to one academic year at any of the Welsh Universities.

Interested students are welcome to contact their campus study abroad office or visit to learn more and apply.
