Eligibility Criteria for Gilman-McCain Scholarship:

To qualify for a Gilman-McCain Scholarship, you must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen or national.
  • Be an undergraduate student at a recognized U.S. college or university (both two-year and four-year schools count).
  • Be a child or spouse of an active-duty U.S. military member (including Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, Navy, and their reserve and National Guard components, as well as Space Force, NOAA Commissioned Corps, and USPHS Commissioned Corps).
  • Be receiving any kind of federal financial aid (Title IV) at the time of application or have proof you'll receive it during your study abroad program.
  • Be applying to or already accepted into a program for credit-bearing study or internship abroad. You'll need to show proof of acceptance before getting the scholarship money.
  • Be applying to a program in a country considered safe for travel by the U.S. Department of State (Travel Advisory Level 1 or 2). Be aware that even within a safe country, there might be specific areas with warnings (Level 3 or 4). Gilman-McCain scholars cannot go to these restricted areas. You can't participate in programs in countries or regions with a "Reconsider travel" (Level 3) or "Do not travel" (Level 4) advisory.
  • The U.S. Department of State can ask you to change your program to a different country or area if they think it's necessary during any part of the application, selection, or program itself. Getting the scholarship ultimately depends on having enough funds and the safety of the program location. The program might even be suspended while it's happening, if the U.S. embassy thinks it's necessary.
