Woodbury School of Architecture congratulates architecture students Jia Er Lin (pictured above) and DaJshey Chatman on being awarded the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship.
The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program offers grants for U.S. citizen undergraduate students of limited financial means to pursue academic studies or credit-bearing, career-oriented internships abroad. Such international exchange is intended to better prepare U.S. students to assume significant roles in an increasingly global economy and interdependent world.
Jia Er Lin, a student in Woodbury University’s Bachelor of Architecture program with a minor in Urban Studies, intends to use her scholarship towards the Japan Study Abroad program the school is offering this summer. “I am looking forward to learning new things and exploring various cities in a completely foreign environment,” said Lin.

DaJshey Chatman is 4th year student in the Bachelor of Architecture program. On using her scholarship to travel to Japan, DaJshey said, “I am looking forward to pursing my goal of utilizing architecture as an international dialect to enhance my level of efficiency with and outside of the realm of architecture.”
Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Award recipients are chosen by a competitive selection process and must use the award to defray eligible study or intern abroad costs. These costs include program tuition, room and board, books, local transportation, insurance and international airfare.
