DePauw University is among the top small colleges in America producing Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholars. An analysis of the 2015-16 academic year lists DePauw as having five winners of the Gilman Scholarship, putting the University in a group of schools (with fewer than 5,000 undergraduates) with the 10th-most winners. DePauw was tied with Wabash College for the most recipients among Indiana small colleges.
The 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.
