The Gilman Scholarship Program offers scholarship grants to students to study or intern abroad. The program is focused on giving this financial reward to students who would not otherwise be able to participate in a study abroad experience due to financial limitations.
Gilman Program managers needed a new modern website for the program. Since the site is primarily a tool for prospective scholarship candidates it was especially important that the site was easy to navigate and clearly presented information about the application process, guidelines, and deadlines in a clear and concise manner. Additionally the new website needed to be 508 compliant and designed with a modern and youthful edge.
The new website is modern and engaging. Additionally the website has fun content features for users to explore. These features include interactive maps displaying scholar profiles, social media integration, video tutorials and infographics to display checklists for both prospective and awarded scholars.
