Record 11 Gilman Scholarships in 2012
Loyola Students Study in Africa, Asia, and Europe
The Fellowship Office congratulates 11 Loyola students who were awarded 2012 Gilman International Scholarships to study abroad. For the Spring 2012 semester, 4 students earned Gilman Scholarships, which at the time was the largest number of Loyolans to earn a Gilman Scholarship in one year, let alone one semester. However, we are pleased to report that both the semester and one-year records were very short-lived. After another student earned a summer award, 6 more Loyola undergraduates earned this honor for Fall 2012!
