Four CCNY undergraduates awarded Gilman Scholarships

Troy Blackwell, Jr., a junior majoring in political science and public relations, is one of four CCNY students named Benjamin Gilman Scholars.

Four high achieving undergraduates at The City College of New York have been awarded 2015 Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarships for study abroad this summer.

The students and their destinations this June are:

  • Troy Blackwell, Jr. (junior, political science/public relations) is headed to Universidad De La Rioja, Spain, to study the Spanish language and Spanish art movements;
  • Dalvin Delia (sophomore, international studies) will study the Italian language, culture and grammar at Senigallia in Italy;
  • Stefanos Ugbit (junior, economics) is going to the University of Jordan to study Arabic.

The fourth Gilman Scholar at City College, Ivana Lazaroska, was scheduled to travel to Turkey. However, the history/political science double major will not take up the award. She has instead opted to participate in the third CCNY/Stanford Summer Research Program in the humanities, June 22 – August 15.  

Gilman Scholars are selected by the Institute of International Education from a competitive process in the 50 states and Puerto Rico. The program’s mission is to prepare U.S. students to assume significant roles in an increasingly global economy and interdependent world.
