The International Center and the College of the Extended University would like to congratulate the following Cal Poly Pomona students for receiving the prestigious Gilman International Scholarship:


Christopher Cao

Shant Charoian

Jasmin Ledezma

Alejandra Novelo Lugo


These students were selected from 386 colleges and universities across the United States by the U.S. Department of State to receive scholarships up to $5,000 to intern or study abroad for the 2017-18 academic year. The Gilman scholarship supports American undergraduate students of limited financial means to study or intern abroad and, since 2001, has enabled more than 24,000 outstanding Americans of diverse backgrounds to engage in a meaningful educational experience abroad. The late Congressman Gilman, for whom the scholarship is named, served in the House of Representatives for 30 years and chaired the House Foreign Relations Committee. The Gilman Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and is supported in its implementation by the Institute of International Education (IIE).

The complete list of students who have been selected to receive Gilman Scholarships this term, including students’ home state, university and host country, is available on the website:



Congratulations again to Christopher, Shant, Jasmin, and Alejandra!
