Restrepo.Sebastian.GilmanSebastian Restrepo, a Provost Scholar undergraduate student at Baruch College, is one of more than 700 American undergraduate students from 341 colleges and universities across the United States who were selected to receive the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship. The scholarship is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Sebastian’s interests include science, technology and culture. He will study abroad in Thailand during the spring 2014 academic term.

Gilman Scholars receive up to $5,000 to apply towards their study abroad program costs. The program aims to diversify the students who study abroad and the countries and regions where they go. Students receiving a federal Pell Grant from two- and four-year institutions who will be studying abroad or participating in an international internship for academic credit are eligible to apply. Scholarship recipients have the opportunity to gain a better understanding of other cultures, countries, languages, and economies — making them better prepared to assume leadership roles within government and the private sector.
