Jennifer Parker recently returned from her study abroad trip to Sussex in England and she was kind enough to share her experience with us to share with the OSU community! Jennifer is a Gilman Scholar – meaning that she was selected to receive the Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship in support of a student’s study abroad programs. Gilman Scholars receive up to $5,000 to go towards a credit-bearing study or intern abroad trip of their choice. To apply, students must be US citizens or nationals, an undergraduate in good standing, and be eligible to receive a Pell Grant.

In this interview, Jennifer shares all about her study abroad experience, how to choose a study abroad program, and tips for how to apply for the Gilman Scholarship:
