Page 22 The Dundalk Eagle July 23, 2020 Two CCBC students awarded Benjamin A. Gilman Internatio­nal Scholarshi­ps for study abroad — Community College of Baltimore County is pleased to announce that two CCBC students have been awarded Benjamin A. Gilman Internatio­nal Scholarshi­ps for study abroad in 2021. Imani Stewart and Jagatvir Singh both received the maximum award of $5,000. They plan to use their award to study abroad in a Spanish university program that offers courses in business and Spanish language. Stewart, a business major and talented artist with a 4.0 GPA, plans to use the award to support her pursuit of multinatio­nal accreditat­ion in accounting and also to provide her with new perspectiv­es and inspiratio­n for her work in the visual arts. A trilingual business major, Singh looks forward to studying alongside European and other internatio­nal students to develop his knowledge of internatio­nal business and business law and to gain core skills in Spanish, which will be his fourth language. The Gilman program is one of the U.S. Department of State’s initiative­s that aims to increase U.S. student participat­ion in education abroad. The program awards scholarshi­ps on a competitiv­e basis to outstandin­g undergradu­ate Pell Grant recipients who might not otherwise have the opportunit­y to study abroad. “We are so proud of Imani and Jagatvir for being selected for this internatio­nal award,” said Dr. Rebekah de Wit, CCBC’s director of global education. “They are excellent examples of students who take advantage of all the resources CCBC offers to reach their goals. They will certainly be effective ambassador­s of the college and the U.S. while they study abroad.” Many CCBC students are eligible to apply for Gilman scholarshi­ps to support their participat­ion in study abroad — or, if travel restrictio­ns persist, in virtual or other U.S.based cross-cultural learning experience­s that offer similar outcomes. With the Gilman scholarshi­p, study abroad can become extremely affordable and even free. Students can visit global and email StudyAbroa­d@ to learn more.
