GW was named the top producer among medium-sized higher education institutions for the Department of State’s Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship for study abroad, which diversifies the student population that studies abroad and the destinations of study. The honor comes as a huge source of pride, as GW has increased efforts to have a diversity of student voices, upbringings, financial backgrounds and fields of study represented through study abroad across the globe. According to the Office for Study Abroad, more than 1,000 GW students study abroad each academic year in more than 150 programs.
