Notre Dame recognized as top producer of Gilman Scholars

Author: Erin Blasko

The University of Notre Dame has been recognized by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs as a top producer of Gilman Scholars over the past 20 years among “medium” institutions based on enrollment.

Eighty-seven Notre Dame students have received Gilman Scholarships since 2001, including a record 44 for the 2020-21 academic year and a record 38 for the 2021-22 application cycle (summer, spring, fall).

That’s good for 15th place overall among institutions with between 5,000 and 15,000 students.

Students who apply for the Gilman do so in concert with the Flatley Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement (CUSE), which promotes the intellectual development of Notre Dame students through scholarly engagement, research, creative endeavors and the pursuit of fellowships.
