International Scholarships for Study Abroad

UNE’s International Affairs Office works to increase student participation in international education and scholarship programs for both undergraduate and graduate students.  Such programs include the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship, the David L. Boren Awards for International Study and the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, among other international scholarship programs sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE). UNE is proud to have had three of its students receive the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to study abroad in the past three years, allowing two students the opportunity to study in Peru and one to study in India at an ISEP member university.
