MEMS Senior Cara Rosetti among 2022 Gilman Scholars at Pitt

Nine University of Pittsburgh students have been named to the U.S. Department of State’s Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program, which supports undergraduates receiving Pell Grants as they study abroad. Awardees go through a rigorous selection process and receive up to $5,000 to intern or study in another country and develop their leadership skills. 

This year’s Pitt winners and their destinations are:

“I am very grateful to be have been selected as a Gilman Scholarship recipient. This award has made my aspirations of studying abroad a reality,” said Rosetti, who is mentored by Visiting Associate Professor Tony Kerzmann.

Gilman recipients were recruited and supported by the Office of National Scholarships, housed within the Frederick Honors College. The office is open to all Pitt students and offers personalized mentoring as they tackle the scholarship application process. Scholar mentors provide expert advice and feedback on application essays, coach students through mock interviews, host preparation workshops and guide students in cultivating recommenders who can produce effective reference letters.
