The Benjamin A.

The programís goal is to diversify the kinds of students who study abroad and the countries and regions where they study. "Since 2003, a number of LHU students have been awarded Gilman Scholarships," said Campbell. "It is an honor to serve on the selection panel for this prestigious program, which provides funding for students who otherwise may not be able to study abroad."
