Jan. 27, 2014
BLOOMINGTON, Ill.— Illinois Wesleyan University students Nancy Guzman ’16 (Cicero,
Ill.) and Cristina Cervantes ’16 (Schiller Park, Ill.) are the recipients of the Benjamin A. Gilman scholarship to study abroad during the spring semester of 2015.
Gilman scholarships are awarded thorough a competitive application process to Pell
Grant recipients wishing to study abroad.
Guzman, an international business and German double major, is studying abroad in Berlin
under the IES Berlin Language and Area Studies program.
“I know I am going to love every minute of it while I am there,” said Cervantes. “Right
now, I am still trying to mentally convince myself that this is not a long-awaited
dream anymore. It is finally a reality.”
The Gilman Scholarship is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational
and Cultural Affairs.
