2019 Gilman and CLS Advisor Workshop

The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program and the Critical Language Scholarship Program are excited to announce the final 2019 Gilman and CLS Advisor Workshop.
The workshop will be held on September 6 at Grand Valley State University (Robert C. Pew Grand Rapids Campus) in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

This one-day workshop will bring together approximately 50 Gilman and CLS advisors to share best practices for promoting the Gilman and CLS Programs to potential applicants, supporting applicants during the application process, engaging with alumni upon program completion, and leveraging alumni for recruitment and promotion. The workshop will also provide advisors with in-depth resources for and updates to the Gilman and CLS Programs and build and strengthen the Gilman and CLS advisor networks for future sharing of resources and best practices.

The workshop, the Gilman Scholarship, and the CLS Program are programs of the U.S. Department of State with funding provided by the U.S. government and supported in their implementation by the Institute of International Education and American Councils for International Education.

The workshop will begin at 8:30am and will conclude by 5:00pm. There is no fee to attend the workshop. Advisors may apply in this application for a modest travel stipend to defray travel costs of attending the workshop. Space is limited and will be filled on a rolling basis. Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously attended an advisor workshop and applicants who work at institutions in the same or neighboring region as the workshop location.
